Ross Hielscher - Terri Butler MP, Labor for Griffith

Ross Hielscher


Ross is a founding member, vice-president and project manager of the Canon Garland Memorial Society.

Ross established the society to commemorate Canon Garland, the chaplain at the Enoggera Army Barracks during World War One who suggested we honour the sacrifice of fallen soldiers through a national day – which is what we’ve come to know as Anzac Day.

Ross has dedicated his time to celebrating this part of our local history and led the team that established the Canon Garland Memorial - ANZAC Day Origins in Kangaroo Point Cliffs Park. 

This memorial has not only been significant for the local community, but is also recognised internationally.

    Ditto, Beverley. Ross can be so proud of being named among a truly prestigious cohort of the City of Brisbane’s most indefagitable community-builders. Thank you, Terri Butler MP, for organising this gesture of public recognition, every Australia Day, to enable such unsung Quiet Achievers to have their ‘moment in the sun’.

    Congrats Ross Hielscher! A very well deserved award – and rightly honoured by the community – well done indeed, and a wonderful promotion for the CGMS! :)
