Goombungee War Memorial

Goombungee, Toowoomba Area
Free Entry
In the Darling Downs farming community of Goombungee you'll find a rather elegant memorial in recognition of the local men lost in the battles of WWI. Gallipoli survivor and hero of French battles Major General Sir Thomas Glasgow unveiled the Goombungee war memorial on 11 December 1920. The people of Goombungee commissioned Toowoomba architect Harry Marks to design a classically-stylish sandstone pedestal with Doric columns, produced by RC Ziegler and Sons. A recessed square section bears leaded marble plates. The front plate carries 29 names - the town's men who died fighting in WWI. Atop the pedestal is a soldier statue, imported from Italy - an iconic representation of an Australian solder, which captures the qualities of loyalty, youth, innocence and bravery that grieving families wanted to remember. The names of eight locals who died in WWII have been added.

Westbrook War Memorial

Westbrook, Toowoomba Area
Free Entry
The WWI memorial in the small rural Darling Downs community of Westbrook is evidence of how pervasive the effect of war was on Queenslanders left behind. The popular 'Digger' statue with an honour roll was unveiled around June 1922 by federal parliamentarian LE Groom (his father William had served as the Darling Downs' first federal politician from 1901). The memorial records that 47 local men went to war. About half of the families listed are represented by more than one member. Two families each saw four of their men go off to war. Westbrook community mourned the loss of 10 lives. The 4.2 metre monument, a life-sized soldier statue standing on a pedestal, was designed and produced by Bruce Brothers of Toowoomba. Once, the memorial stood in an open field. Today, development around it finds it adjacent to Westbrook's public hall.
