Description

The Queensland Garden of Remembrance is situated within the Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery and is operated and maintained by the Office of Australian War Graves.

The original garden was opened in the early 1960s and was extended in 1988.

Set around a large fig tree, the memorial walls have the capacity for 45,500 plaques.

A feature of the garden is a large fig tree around which the plaque walls radiate. The entry building houses the plaque recording the opening of the extended garden in 1988. To the right are columns bearing the emblems of the three services. Beyond the columns lies a lily pond.

Upon entering the garden the fig tree is to the left. A watercourse flows through the garden and leads to a cascading waterfall. The path follows the contour of the extended garden. Occasionally placed copper-clad pergolas provide shaded seating areas surrounded by water plants. The creeper which blooms with attractive yellow flowers, and which covers the pergola is the Lady Slipper vine (Thunbergia mysorensis).

The path continues into the original garden where, at the end, a large shelter is provided. This shelter also houses a large dedication plaque.

The office houses the register books which list the wall and row number of each individual plaque. Office is on site at Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery (located in the middle of the cemetery and separate from the Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery office)
