Charleville War Memorial

Edward Street, Charleville QLD 4470
Charleville's war memorial echoes the taste of southern states - an ornately carved marble obelisk rather than the Queensland favourite, soldier statue. Queensland Governor Sir Matthew Nathan unveiled the £1000 square pillar monument, made from Italian marble, on 9 October 1924. Located in a park in Wills Street, it was erected by the people of Charleville and district and the sub-branch of the Returned Services League. Australians were very proud of their army of volunteers, there was no conscription. Monuments like this one in Charleville provide a roll call of the 310 district heroes who signed up. The front panel bears the names of the 40 who died in WWI. The Charleville memorial is very similar in design to one in Esk and is thought to have been designed by Ipswich architect George Brockwell Gill. It was produced by masonry firm R C Ziegler and Son of Toowoomba. Names relating to later conflicts have been added to the memorial and two war trophies added to the park. Four granite soldier statues, representing a Catafalque party, together with eight dividing granite bollards were added to the memorial for ANZAC Day, April 2010.

Charleville - Steiger Vortex Rainmaking Guns

Sturt Street, Graham Andrews Parklands, Charleville QLD 4470
The Steiger Vortex Rainmaking Guns are on display within the Graham Andrews Parklands. It's a fascinating outback story. In 1902 Queensland was in the grip of a great drought. The desperation to produce rain took a unique turn. Queensland's first Government Meteorologist, Mr Clement L Wragge decided to experiment with Steiger Vortex Guns, developed to break up hail over the vineyards of Italy. Wragge had six copies of the 'guns' made hoping they would produce much needed rain. The vertical guns were built and placed strategically throughout Charleville, their barrels pointing directly up into the sky. They were charged with gunpowder, in the hope that the resulting explosion would change the atmospheric pressure and produce rain. Today only two remain intact and are on display in Charleville for all to enjoy. Did you know, Mr Clement Wragge was the first man to name a cyclone in Australia ? Mr Wragge initially named these cyclones after politicians as he thought in some cases they were as much a national disaster as a politician..
