Design Statement

The Ipswich and Rosewood Coal Miners memorial will be a place for reflection and commemoration of the role of the men and boys, and their families, in the evolution of the underground coal industry in the region. It was an industry that formed the backbone of the community for generations and served to develop the region and greater Queensland at critical times in history. The memorial will honour their contribution and, importantly, commemorate those men and boys who whilst working in the mines, gave their lives.
