ANZAC Commemorative Precinct
Emu Parks Centanery of ANZAC walk is a must see tribute to our Anzacs.
There are many ANZAC walk memorials around Australia, but Emu Parks is unique as it wraps around the coast, offering fantastic views of the area. The coastal boardwalk meanders from the central sandstone historical pictographs up towards The Gatehouse, a moving floor-to-ceiling First World War storyboards including portraits of locals. Wander further up past silhouettes and Battle Markers towards a stunning coastal lookout then wraps around and ends at the Singing Ship.
The memorial pays tribute to the ANZAC’s in a way that offers visitors the chance to learn more about an important piece of history and remember those who have given their lives for us.
