Mowbray Park and East Brisbane War Memorial

A rare life-size statue of an Australian Light Horseman was unveiled while guns still fired. The monument was erected in riverside Mowbray Park in August 1917, and is the first of Brisbane's WWI memorials. Initiated by the East Brisbane Cadet Committee, it set out to honour the 520 early enlistments from Kangaroo Point and East Brisbane. Additional plates bearing more names were added during and after the war. Annerley monumental mason Alfred Batson carved the soldier statue from Helidon sandstone. The memorial is flanked by two cannons, reputedly part of Thursday Island's 19th century defences. To enable the expansion of the Bowling Club, the memorial was moved in 1974 to its present position to the east on the central path at the Lytton Road end of the 3.2 hectare park.

St Marys Anglican Church, Memorial Chapel

The first woman to practise medicine in Queensland, Lilian Cooper, and her lifetime partner Josephine Bedford, were regular worshippers at St Mary's Anglican Church, colloquially known as the naval chapel and once linked by stairs down the Kangaroo Point cliffs to the naval stores below. Within the church, two large gothic stained glass windows and an altar are dedicated to Cooper and her WWI heroics. Dismissed by English and Australian military authorities because she was female, Cooper signed up with the Scottish Women's Hospitals Service. Bedford went too. While Cooper worked to stabilise casualties just behind the Serbian front, Bedford ferried the injured to safety. Their war efforts earned them the Order of St Sava. They returned to Brisbane in time to continue their community welfare efforts and fight the Spanish flu epidemic that returned with servicemen. The Warriors' Chapel was dedicated in 1950, commemorating armed service and merchant navy personnel who died in both world wars. Navy memorials can be found throughout the grounds, overlooking the Brisbane River.

Story Bridge

Brisbane's Story Bridge opened for operation on July 6, 1940. This date came five years after construction commenced and fourteen years after initial recommendations for a river crossing in the Kangaroo Point vicinity. Essentially, the Story Bridge was one of the then governments' three major public works projects, creating years of employment for many men during the Great Depression. The Story Bridge is the largest steel bridge designed, fabricated and constructed in Australia by Australians.
