Beautiful light show @ night
Oct 2019 • Solo
I was staying on Flinders St within walking distance of Anzac Park and came across the bright lights at the fountain as I was coming down Wickham St. The fountain is the centrepiece of the park.

It was a magical place and I spent a while mesmerised by the light show. The colours change from red to blue to green, even rainbow.

There is also a gazebo inside the park and I met a friendly possum there who seemed fine with humans.

Well worth a stop off after dark.

Lovely Memorial
Jan 2020
Not only a beautiful memorial to our military personnel, but a well utilized park for events. Great place to walk along by the river, enjoy a picnic, observe the memorials, or attend an event. Beautiful fountain is the centerpiece, which is lit up at night and relaxing if taking an evening post-dinner stroll.

Memorial on the coast

Such a lovely tribute with significance to our veterans. Very touching memorial in a great parkland near The Strand. Several areas to visit with plaques and fountains

Do you like indulging looking back while surrounded by a tropical reality?This place epitomizes the beauty and modernity of tropical Oz.Nearly opposite are food,drink,ices outlets.Opposite to these is the memorial with the eternal flame,plaques detailing naval events in the Pacific and nearby is the recognition of the USAF. Not a bad view seaward,either!.

Anzac landmarks on The Strand
Jul 2019 • Couples
A nice park to walk, explore & the box that plays recorded messages, singing the anthem is poignant to listen to. A fitting memorial to our war heroes & acknowledged their contributions to the country. Also, the water fountain ⛲️ that lights up at night that changes in different colour is therapeutic to watch. Worth a visit.

It is a sombre thing to wander any Memorials but this is beautiful and so much to see and read about, plus the recorded messages playing, singing the anthem and last post. It is really lovely. Must do.

Visited on Monday 17th September. We stopped to have a look at Anzac Park whilst on a walk along The Strand. A fitting memorial to our War Heroes.

A reflective spot on the Strand
Nov 2018 • Friends
It’s part of the Strand, a park like environment with a fountain. The eternal flame burns there also. It’s the most amazing dawn service on Anzac Day. If you walk along the Strand you will go right past the park, you can detour into it for a look.

Lovely place that does an excellent job of honouring those who have served. Gives a great insight into what it means to be Australian.

Beautiful Area of Remembrance
Sep 2018 • Couples
A quiet area of lovely gardens and many different memorials to the different branches of the Armed Services and commemorating the many sacrifices of all over the different conflicts ! With a nice water front walkway it is an easy way to relax and remember the many. Also houses a Cairn to the founders of Townsville, plenty of shade area & room for the kids to enjoy as well !
