Gin Gin War Memorial
A life-sized digger with head bowed and arms reversed, wearing an ammunition bandolier over his shoulder, is atop a typical Petrie base. The memorial is painted grey and white, and is set in immaculate rose gardens, with a chain border around the memorial, small pipe border around the roses, and a low concrete border around the whole area. It is set in the centre of a divided highway where the Bruce Highway connects with the by-pass road into Bundaberg.
In memory of those who so nobly gave their lives for our freedom in the Great War of 1914-1919.
They rose responsive to their country's call,
They gave their best, their lives, their all.
Lower plaque reads:
In memory of the fallen in the war of 1939–1945, Lest we Forget.
Top name on the first plaque is a nursing sister, Sister E Wilson, followed by 48 names for World War I and 14 names around the bottom for World War II.
Kolan Shire Roll of Honour is inset in the base of the memorial.
