About Freedom Park
Freedom Park is in the historical heart of Hervey Bay.
The Pialba War Memorial, unveiled in 1921 to commemorate the men from the district who served in World War I, forms the centre of a memorial complex that includes the former Pialba railway station building, Shire Council hall and a dramatic life-size statue of an Australian light horseman from the famous charge at the Battle of Beersheba in 1917.
The war memorial at Freedom Park was designed by the Fraser Coast’s most famous architect, P.O.E. Hawkes
