Rothwell, a residential suburb on Deception Bay and west of the Redcliffe peninsula, is 28 km north of central Brisbane. It was named after TJ Rothwell, chairman of the Redcliffe Anzac memorial committee, which arranged the planting of avenue-of-honour trees along Anzac Avenue. Tree planting began with a ceremony attended by the Governor-General on 7 July 1924. Rothwell Park and the Rothwell memorial are in Anzac Avenue, just south of Deception Bay Road.
