Rainbow Bridge Memorial GardenPrint Page Print this page


Photographs supplied by John Huth
The garden commemorates the animals who died and crossed the Rainbow Bridge during the Lockyer Valley flood of the 10th of January 2011.

The Rainbow Bridge is the theme of a work of poetic prose written some time between 1980 and 1992, whose original creator is unknown. The theme is of an other-worldly place to which a pet goes upon its death, eventually to be reunited with its owner. It has gained popularity amongst animal lovers who have lost a pet.
