Memorial Gardens

The Ulysses Memorial Garden is a living memorial to the motorcyclists of South East Queensland who have ridden on.

Located on public land, at ‘The Spit', the memorial gardens are a place where relatives and friends of local and other motorcyclists can spread the ashes of loved ones who have Ridden On 

2004

Redcliffe & Glasshouse Mountains Ulysses Branches held the first memorial ride to ‘The Spit’, which is located at Somerset Dam. GPS coordinates and a link to a google map appear at the end of this article.

2005

Redcliffe member David Cox (#26626 DM #54) took the idea for a Memorial Garden to the Canberra AGM where he received full support from NATCOM and the blessing of ‘Old #1’ Stephen Dearnley.

David, approached South East Queensland Water, and requested a 10m x 2.5m garden bed, enough for 40 plants.

What he received, was far in excess of this, and SEQ Water granted an area 40m x 2.5m which was to be established as a memorial garden.

As the area was much larger than anticipated, various SE QLD branches were invited to plant trees in the allocated space. As time grew nearer to the memorial day, 'Doc' took it upon himself to provide all of the trees and plant out the allocated space.

Each year 'Doc' financed the purchase of new trees and memorial ride badges. The badges were sold at the memorial day to recoup expenses, with all profits forwarded to NATCOM and UCARF

2009

An SEQ Water Ranger became aware that some Ulyssians  had brought their dogs 'The Spit' and had parked their motorcycles in car parks not allocated to them

A response letter from both 'Doc' and a solicitor was sent to all SE QLD branches outlining the problem and also how it was to be dealt with.

The letter was met with general approval and the following year (2010) the memorial day went ahead as planned, albeit in a slightly modified format.

2011

All branch Presidents from the SE QLD region agreed they would assume responsibility of the Memorial Gardens and took charge of care and maintenance. 

Present day

The size of the Memorial Gardens have increase substantially since the first memorial held in 2004 and now occupies most of the several acres set aside by SEQ Water for the SEQ Ulysses branches to develop

SE QLD branches regularly hold working bees of between 50 - 100 volunteers to maintain and improve the area for all to enjoy.

From small beginnings and much hard work by dedicated Ulyssians,  the gardens have flourished to become the magnificent memorial garden it is today. A memorial garden that not only supports local wildlife but one that offers a place for all motorcyclist to reflect and enjoy
