The Stansbury War Memorial was originally located in front of the Stansbury Institute on Weaver Street. In 1922, when the Memorial Rooms were erected at the front of the Institute, one of the Moreton Bay Fig ‘Memorial Trees’ was relocated to the foreshore, where the Stansbury War Memorial is located today. For many years, the remembrance tradition involved a parade of veterans marching from the Stansbury Institute, to the Memorial Tree to line up in front of a plaque – which is still located next to the tree today.

In 1999, a new War Memorial was constructed including a large granite plaque listing Actions in which soldiers from the Stansbury area served.

In February 2019, the War Memorial was again upgraded, this time to include a limestone wall and two bronze plaques listing Those Who Served in WWI and WWII. These new plaques now mark the entrance of the Stansbury War Memorial.

The Yorke Peninsula is the traditional lands of the Narungga (Nharangga) people, who have lived on, and cared for, this country since the beginning of time. We work, live and travel on Nharannga Banggara [Country], and we take time away from those pursuits to acknowledge and pay our deep respects to the Nharangga Elders of the past and present. 

Today, it is essential that we continue to care for and protect our spectacular natural environment. Tread lightly and leave no trace. Learn more about responsible and respectful travel on Yorke Peninsula.
