Front Inscription

This monument commemorates the 50th anniversary
         of the Lions Club of Burleigh Heads
(1957-2007) and recognises the valuable
       contribution of its members to the
              Gold Coast community.
The inspiration for this sculpture by local artist
Ronald Muir was the figurehead on the bow of the
English sailing ship H.M.S. Lowstaff , launched in 1697.
    The two lions that are the focus of the
        art piece are also evocative of the
        Lions Club logo, which symbolises
recognition of the past while looking to the future.

This monument jointly funded by Gold Coast City Council
             and the Queensland Government
                 was unveiled on 6 May 2007
