The Memorial Gates at Park Road were erected by the residents of the Stephens Shire as a permanent memorial to the men and women who served in World War One.   A plaque was added to the gates in 1979 to commemorate those who served in World War Two, Malaya, Korea, Borneo and Vietnam.

The residents of the district assisted by the Stephens Shire Council recently erected gates at the railway entrance to the honour avenue and these were formally opened by His Excellency the Governor of Queensland, Sir Matthew Nathan on the 21st May 1921. Prior to opening the gates and the memorial tablet, the Governor said that as he went through the country he found everywhere memorials to those who had fallen in the Great War. They told him two things - that in all parts of Queensland there was intense courage and readinees for self sacrifice and love country, and in more peaceful times the people remembered and honoured the fine qualities of these heroes.
