Amiens Legacy Centre is the site of a memorial to the Pikedale Soldier Settlers from WW1. Built by volunteers of the Amiens History Assn. on the site of the original rail terminus at Amiens.
The centre features a lovingly restored 1909 Qld Rail carriage located where Edward, HRH Prince of Wales alighted in 1920 to meet the settlers and open the branch line established to transport their produce to markets.
The carriage has been restored in a manner “fit for a prince” and contains stories and artifacts of the settlement and information about the original soldiers and their families, where they took up their blocks, and how life was in those times. In addition there are art works representing the history in the form of a headlight window, poppy quilt, granite rock sculpture, large mural on a shed wall etc…….. Come and see for yourself.
