Dedicated to all those who served

This series of monuments have been created to inspire you to reflect on all service men and women, past and present, who have dedicated themselves to defending our beautiful country, Australia.

Commissioned by the Returned & Services League (RSL) of Australia (Queensland-Branch) Boyne-Tannum Sub-Branch Inc as a Centenary of ANZAC project, this artwork is a respectful thank you for all they have done, continue to do and aspire to do every day in each branch of the armed forces.

Women – Evolution of Women into the Australian Defence Force.

RAN- Royal Australian Navy

ARMY – The Australian Army

RAAF – Royal Australian Air Force

These monuments have been made possible due to the contributions of many.

Manufacturing and construction of the monument was carried out with grant funds from the Commonwealth Government’s Stronger Communities Program and the Shell’s QGC Project.  Four solid aluminium billets were proudly donated by Boyne Smelter Limited. The Artist commissioned was Katrina Elliott and the monuments were installed by the Gladstone Regional Council.

We would like to respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which these monuments reside Byellee, Gurang, Gooreng Gooreng and Taribelang Bunda people
