About Maroon State School War Memorial

Book Direct with the Owner at Maroon State School War Memorial with Find Attractions in Boonah, for all your Attraction and travel needs.

Ipswich stonemason Frank Williams' sandstone soldier statue dominates the Maroon school yard in the farming district south of Boonah as a constant reminder of this community's wartime loss. In 1919, a local committee set out to raise money for a memorial and honour stone to express gratitude to the community's men who had served in WWI: 42 men from 35 families. 17 had not returned, a mortality rate twice the national average of 20 per cent. On 21 May 1920, General Sir William Birdwood unveiled the Maroon War Memorial, a soldier standing on top of a tall column which in turn rests on a substantial pedestal and plinth. He also presented returned servicemen with Maroon Patriotic Committee medals. An honour board recognising the district's 42 men and women who served in WWII has since been added. The Maroon War Memorial remains the focus of annual Anzac Day commemorations with locals volunteering for its upkeep and maintenance.
