The entrance is very nice. The two tanks on display are well maintained. For a small community it's a nice little park display. Also has public toilets that have nice mural

ANZAC Park is well presented with a troop carrier and Leopard tank to enhance the memorial stones and flagpole and names of veterans. The park was clean and tidy and the entrance off the main street well and truly caught your eye.

A great park to remember those who have helped keep our countries free. Very nice to spend a bit of time here, see the artifacts and the Leopard Tank.

Memorbilla on display, artefacts, and local volunteers offer great service and knowledge. It is well worth a visit and located right in town.

This was new since my last visit and is a quiet retreat off the main drag of cooktown. Grassy open area, under shade with views of the River. A thoughtful contribution to honour those who gave their tomorrows for our todays. Visit in the day...More
