Fernvale Murals

Fernvale, Somerset Area
Free Entry
The Fernvale Murals were conceived as a community project to help re-establish pride and confidence in the town after the trauma of the 2011 floods. There are three murals located around the Fernvale Memorial Park along the Brisbane Valley Highway. The design of the murals is not intended to show the town exactly as it was, but rather to illustrate the life of the growing community. The buildings seen in the murals are taken from photographs of actual building which stood in Fernvale in the early days, some of which can still be seen in the town today.

An opulent bronze, marble and sandstone cenotaph has stood in Esk since 1921, even though it took another 58 years for the surrounding park to be proclaimed as a memorial reserve. The foundation stone was laid in December 1920 by Colonel Graham Butler, the original medical officer who landed with the Queensland 9th Battalion at Gallipoli. The Esk Patriotic Committee had started fundraising in 1916. They needed £885, a high price for a community paying a high human cost. Of the 545 men from the Esk district who enlisted, 83 died. All the names are captured on this monument. Fixed bronze plates on the base bear the names of the dead. The others' names appear on huge bronze plates fixed to recessed marble panels. Designed by Georg Brockwell Gill of Ipswich, the stonework was executed by masons Frank Williams & Co. Art metalwork was supplied by Wunderlich Ltd of Sydney. The memorial park, proclaimed in 1979, was extended four years later. It now includes a stone memorial to Captain Patrick Logan, commandant of the Moreton Bay Penal Settlement who was murdered while exploring the Brisbane Valley in 1830, and plaques honouring those who died in WWII and post-1945 conflicts.

McConnell Park and Toogoolawah War Memorial

Toogoolawah, Somerset Area
Free Entry
Toogoolawah literally set in stone an eternal memorial to 'Our Boys Honour' when its citizens commissioned the first WWI memorial outside a cemetery back in 1916. The obelisk, crafted by Frank Williams and Co of Ipswich, was unveiled on 31 March 1917. It bears marble honour rolls and an engraved wreath with the words 'Our Boys Honour'. Until then, only Private Victor Denton's monument in his family plot at Nobby cemetery on the Darling Downs stood as a tribute to the European heroics of young Queenslanders. Originally set apart from the rest of the park by a picket fence, gardens were laid out by 1921 and a WWI gun was installed adjacent to the memorial on Anzac Day of that year. Memorials to subsequent conflicts have been added over the years. The park's land was donated to the community by Brisbane Valley pioneering pastoralist family, the McConnels. It's believed they also donated the nearby bandstand.

Morelia Track, Manorina

At the end of the walk there are large granite boulders on which to sit and ponder, and perhaps plan your next walk.

Lake Somerset

Somerset Dam, Somerset Area

Lake Somerset is just south of Kilcoy and is a very popular boating and recreational spot. Motorised and non-motorised watercraft are allowed on Lake Somerset along with waterskiing, jet skiing, and wakeboarding.

The lake is also a great fishing spot either from your boat or along the shoreline. Don't forget to grab your boating and fishing permits before heading out or dropping a line.

These areas also provide picnic and barbecue facilities, along with Somerset Park, so make the most of if and enjoy the whole day by the water. If you want to stay longer there are a number of private campgrounds, holiday houses and retreats close by.
