Local Voices, Living Stories

The Local Voices, Living Stories: Monto Remembers its Anzacs Project is an initiative of North Burnett Regional Council made possible through the Queensland Anzac Centenary Grants Program. The series of five mini-documentaries were filmed in February 2016 and aim to bring to life, through the voices of their descendants, the stories and legacies of six men who proudly served their country in World War One and came to call Monto home. The films explore each serviceman’s life, wartime and post-war experiences, and contribution to Monto as told by their descendants. The series begins with a brief history of the Monto area by local historian Harold Ware.  Watch the videos below or borrow the DVD version from your local North Burnett Regional Council Library.

This project is proudly supported by the Queensland Government.
