Our Family, Our Friends

The Memorial

Lights on the Hill Truck & Coach drivers Memorial is a memorial wall for truck and coach drivers who have passed before their time. These people have contributed substantially to the Australian transport industry, and the wall is the organisations way of immortalising their sacrifices and triumphs in service to their country.

The memorial wall is situated within the transport hub of Gatton QLD in Lake Apex Park.

Over the years numerous volunteers have given their time to bring this wall to life for the families and mates of deceased drivers, so that they can all have somewhere to go to honour the memories of their loved one.

In October each year truckies families and friends from around the country assemble before the memorial, to honour the drivers whose names will be added to the wall that year and whose names already reside there. This service is open to anyone to attend.

Nominations are now being taken to have a loved one added to wall at the 2017 service which will be held on 1st October 2017. Entries must be received by us by 31st July 2017 to enable the manufacturer ample time to produce and attach the plaques prior to the service.

Applications can be made by following the prompts via the memorial drop down menu on this website. 

 

The Lights on the Hill committee would like to invite you to join us at the 2017 memorial service which will be held on 1st October commencing at 1000am.

Although there are wreaths supplied, we encourage you to bring your own flowers (if you wish) to be laid during the service in memory of your loved one. As seating is limited we request you bring along a chair and umbrella for your comfort.
