Memorial Park Bandstand (Rotunda) Project

Memorial Park is one of the region’s most significant landmarks and has a wealth of history since opening in 1921. It is a place the community gathers to celebrate important milestones such as weddings, high school formal photos and remembrance days and more.

In February and May 2022 the Bandstand (Rotunda) was devastated by flooding which caused significant damage. As a heritage-listed site, specialist care is needed to repair and restore the structure and this will take some time. 

How can YOU get involved?

In the meantime, we feel that an important part of our recovery as a community from the events of last year is to share just how special this place has been and will continue to be for many years to come.

Council have installed a series of panels that tell the story of the Memorial Park.

We would like to invite the community to share their memories with photos and stories of weddings, high school formals, community events and Remembrance Day commemorations that will also be installed on the fencing for all to enjoy!

Photos, posters and stories can be submitted digitally

Alternatively, if you would prefer to have your photos/items copied and returned to you, you can stop into the Gympie Library or the Gympie Regional Gallery and our staff are happy to assist.


Council is working with our partner agencies regarding the heritage specific requirements and approvals to not only restore the Rotunda but better strengthen it against future disaster events. Works are forecast to commence later this year.
