Stunning ANZAC memorial on the Capricorn Coast
Emu Park ANZAC Memorial

The creative vision of Emu Park local artist Ross Coulter was the starting point for the creation of a stunning Anzac Memorial, which is located at Emu Park foreshore, about twenty minutes' drive from Yeppoon on the Capricorn Coast. Though Ross Coulter passed away in 2011, the Emu Park RSL Sub-Branch continued with his ideas and his legacy lives on.

The memorial incorporates a boardwalk that hugs the coastline around to Emu Park's Singing Ship, where a viewing deck affords beautiful views over the Pacific Ocean. An enormous degree of care has gone into the creation of the memorial, right down to the inclusion of rosemary plants, which grow wild on the Gallipoli Peninsula. There is a gatehouse, which features a timeline honouring locals who lost their lives along with thousands of others during the First World War and it's lovely to note that the animals who died are remembered there too.

The Anzac Court memorial is located opposite the Emu Park RSL Sub-Branch and the Anzac Day services - particularly the Dawn Service - are very moving. The sound of the waves, the coastal breezes and magnificent views are the perfect backdrop to this incredible memorial.
