“A pleasant stop”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

While not a grand monument by any means this statue is set in a small park on the bank of the river and is a nice quiet spot for a break on the way. Picnic and BBQ facilities are present as are public toilets. Horse racing fans will find more historical interest in the monument. For those who aren't it is a nice spot to break a drive and stretch the legs along the river bank or have lunch.

Reviewed June 23, 2013

Situated in beautiful Apex park beside the river ...a trip to, or through Goondiwindi wouldn't be complete without stopping for a photo with the Goondiwindi Grey!
