Opened in June 2005, the Hawkesbury Regional Gallery has a changing program of exhibitions and public programs for people of all ages.
Public programs provide opportunities for those who want to deepen their understanding of art, meet the exhibiting artists in person and make the most of their gallery experience. Every exhibition features artist and curator talks, and there are often children's workshops, film screenings and guided tours.
Exhibitions are scheduled over a two year period to offer a variety of media in visual art, craft, photography and design. The exhibition program aims to uphold the Hawkesbury's artistic and creative heritage while showcasing the new and original. Every year, at least some of the exhibitions come through Australia's extensive network of regional and public galleries All exhibitions aim to be thought-provoking, challenging and educational.
The Old Windsor Council Chambers, built from locally quarried porphyry in 1897, maintains displays of articles and equipment used in the locality, as well as a small library of local books and photography. The Society is housed in unique heritage listed stone local government building beside the Windsor Quarry Park and opposite the Windsor War Memorial Park. This local gem is responsible for the district Anzac Day Service (held at 9:00am) each year, as well as an annual history walk on the last Sunday in July.
A red light from a bronze lantern beams out at night from a Helidon brown sandstone cenotaph, standing on a high point of a northern thoroughfare leading towards Brisbane's Central Business District. The octagonal pavilion with its four arches and domed roof was unveiled on ANZAC Day 1925 on behalf of the citizens of Windsor to commemorate local residents who had served in WWI. This dominating cenotaph, designed by honorary architects FR Hall and WA Devereux and constructed by Peter Frew, is rare among Queensland's WWI monuments because of its octagonal design. Yeronga's Memorial is closest in style in Brisbane. External corner panels are inscribed with names of some 120 local war dead. Red and blue concrete borders a leaded marble commemorative plaque on the pavilion's floor. Moulded laurel wreath ornamentation encircle the ceiling. The Windsor War Memorial stands on the site of the original school situated between Lutwyche Road and Roblane Street, Windsor-opposite the former Windsor Town Council Chambers.
