The Yuleba Cenotaph War Memorial is undergoing a major upgrade, just time time for Anzac Day.

Large scale landscaping and stone work projects are soon to be completed thanks to the work of local builder, Dan Murray.

The project will feature a new monument, paths, gardens and a watering system at Gath Cox Park in Yuleba.

A key project for the Yuleba community, entitled ‘Through the Cracks: Remembering Yuleba’s Lost WWI Soldiers’, will reflect the names of local service men and women who served in conflicts from World War I up to the present day.

The Yuleba Development Group, and other community members have been vital in the collation of information for the memorial.

The memorial’s design is one of a kind in the Maranoa, with a beautiful 3D poppy installation made from aluminium to be placed above the plinth and the garden will include local plants, such as bottle trees and bottle brushes.

The re-production of the renowned Yuleba Hall mural will also be a welcome feature.

This cenotaph is anticipated to be completed in later this month.
