Laserzone Brisbane Logo and Images

Laserzone Brisbane

561 Gympie Road, Lawnton QLD 4501

Laser Tag is a high-tech sport where players wearing computerised vests or packs and handheld "phasers" attempt to achieve a winning score by zapping opponent players, base stations, and other targets within a playing arena or maze.

After players put on their packs, the players move into the arena and the missions is started by the central computer. The packs will activate allowing the player to fire their phaser at opponent packs and arena devices such as base stations. Each pack has sensors on the front, back, shoulders and phaser. Zapping these areas will award points while deactivating the tagged opponent for a short time. At the end of the mission, the packs shutdown automatically and the players return to the kit-up room. Score information is displayed on the scoreboard in the foyer. You can even get a print-out your own individual scorecard!

Each mission consists of 8 minutes of actual arena time. We allow a 4 minute change-over and kit-up time. For your first mission, there will also be a 5 minute briefing where Laserzone staff will explain the operation of the packs and arena devices as well as outlining the safety rules.

When you play more than one mission, you will have a 12 minute rest between your missions.

Sandgate War Memorial Park Logo and Images

Sandgate War Memorial Park

8 Seymour Street, Sandgate QLD 4017
Sandgate's war memorial resembles Lutyens' Cenotaph in Whitehall, the site of Remembrance Sunday ceremonies in London since 1919. Governor Sir Matthew Nathan unveiled Sandgate's 91 tonne granite and concrete memorial on 24 February 1924. Of the 330, mostly young, Sandgate men who went to war, 51 died. Australia-wide, about one in five of the 300,000 volunteer soldiers died in WWI. War memorials were a matter of local pride, indicating a district's patriotism and wealth. Sandgate Mayor WH Bowser not only presided over the memorial's organising committee which commissioned prominent Queensland architect George Gray Prentice to design the £850 monument, but also donated much of the granite from his Samford quarry. Charles Lowther, of the masonry firm Lowther and Sons that built the cenotaph within a small island of parkland, was a returned soldier: he'd served in the Light Horse in Palestine during WWI. The memorial bears a verse- They died, and yet in memory shall they live, That we may know the worth of sacrifice, Know that their death is freedom's cause, Stands as a beacon light to point the way, To paths of peace. Names of Sandgate residents killed in WWII, Malaya, Korea and Vietnam have been added.
