Erected on the Anzac Ave and Kinsellas Rd intersection at Mango Hill in 2000, the Mango Hill Light Horse Memorial commemorates the historical past of the northern part of the Pine Rivers Shire.
This Anzac monument site is clearly visible from the road and stands in honour of the Light Horse regiment.
A Light Horseman and Waler horse stand side by side in the centre of the park, encircled by gardens. Park signage is upheld by artillery shell designed supports. An inscribed plaque honouring the spirit of the Anzac soldiers and commemorating the history of the area is attached to a large dedication rock within the gardens for visitors to read.
A squadron of the Light Horse trained at the Lawnton (now Pine Rivers) showgrounds. Anzac soldiers from the local Light Horse Brigade served in both world wars and continued to serve at home between WWI and WWII, training troops and serving the local community.
Many of the Moreton Bay Region pony clubs can trace their origins back to these Light Horse units as many were formed after the Light Horse disbanded.
To take a look at the memorial and the Anzac monuments upon it for yourself, park opposite, across the road in the shopping centre car park and cross this avenue of honour safely at the lights.
Brad Davis, a member and former president of the 11th Light Horse Historical Troop,played a key role in the memorial’s creation.
