‘Sesquicentennial of the Burnett 1848 – 1998’
– celebrating the very first European explorers, surveyors, selectors, pioneers and settlers of the Central and Upper Burnett regions of Queensland. The year the first Europeans, the Archer Brothers, crossed the Burnett River in this region was 1848. This crossing site was to become ‘Queensland’s First Town’ – Gayndah . . .
The monument is set within a park which is, itself, nestled within the historical precinct of Gayndah. It houses a museum; a number of beautifully restored, historic homes and homesteads of the region, including the ‘Ideraway‘ and ‘Ban Ban‘ Homesteads. A huge pavilion is packed full of historical horse-drawn carts, steam engines, machinery . . .
Signage provides information regarding the flood events that have occurred – almost unfathomable when one observes the trickling waters of the Burnett River, which are only metres away . . .
