Recognise Your Family War History

Did someone in your family serve in a unit based on the Atherton Tablelands during WWII or reside here before or after the war?

Their service can be recognised by a personal plaque at the Rocky Creek War Memorial Park.

‘Applications are open for personal plaques to be placed at the memorial park,’ said Rocky Creek War Memorial Park committee member Councillor Dave Bilney.

‘The plaques are unveiled and dedicated at VP Day commemorations in August each year — this year on Sunday 11 August,’ Councillor Bilney said.

Apply by Tuesday 30 April to have a personal plaque dedicated in 2024.

The Rocky Creek War Memorial Park located on the Kennedy Highway north of Tolga is situated on the 2/2nd Australian General Hospital laundry and medical stores site.
