The Tweed community will come together in their thousands this Anzac Day to pay their respects and remember those who have served and continue to serve the nation during times of conflict.

Council staff have been tending to war memorial sites across the Shire in recent weeks, ensuring the locations are prepared ahead of a flurry of community activity this Anzac Day.

The Tweed’s cenotaphs, monuments and hardstand memorial areas have been pressure-cleaned and a fresh coat of paint applied to some sites ahead of services this Thursday, 25 April. Surrounding lawn areas will also be freshly mowed and gardens tended to in the lead up to the day.

Main memorial sites across the Tweed include:

  • Anzac Memorial – Chris Cunningham Park, Jack Evans Boat Harbour, Tweed Heads

  • Remembrance Place (Murwillumbah Civic Centre) – Tumbulgum Road, Murwillumbah

  • Rowan Robinson Park – Marine Parade, Kingscliff

  • Memorial Walk – Murphys Road, Kingscliff

  • Cudgen War Memorial and Memorial Pines – Collier & Crescent Street, Cudgen

  • Anzac Park – Tweed Coast Road, Pottsville

  • Burringbar Memorial Reserve/Masterson Park – Broadway, Burringbar

  • Uki Centenary Park– Kyogle Road, Uki

  • Tyalgum War Memorial – Coolman Street, Tyalgum.

Mayor of Tweed Shire Chris Cherry said ANZAC Day was an occasion to reflect on the courageous efforts of current and former service men and women and their lasting contribution to Australia’s sovereignty.

“On ANZAC Day we pay tribute and express our gratitude to those who have served and defended Australia’s national interests, in particular those local service men and women who have bravely defended our country throughout history,” Cr Cherry said.

“The Tweed has a long history of dedicated service people, from Tweed Heads to Murwillumbah and the Tweed Valley and across to the Tweed Coast, and on ANZAC Day we proudly honour their lasting legacy.”
