Alderman John Tyack Print Page
Rotunda dedicated to the memory of Alderman John Tyack who was instrumental in its erection.
Tyack was an alderman in the Townsville City Council 1906-1913, and Mayor of Townsville in 1912. He had commissioned the elaborate re-building of Queen's Hotel, one of the few grand hotels of Northern Queensland, starting in 1902-04, and took an interest in beautifying the foreshore opposite.
In April 1912, during Tyack's term as mayor, Townsville City Council applied to have the foreshore along The Strand, from the sea baths to King Street, gazetted as The Strand Park. Tyack died in 1913 and the bandstand was dedicated in his memory.
