ANZAC Park (Ululah Lagoon), Maryborough


Ululah Lagoon is a key feature of ANZAC Park. Abundant with wildlife, the lagoon was an important freshwater source for the local Aboriginal people. The Maryborough pioneers in the 19th century used the same resource for fresh water, building a jetty into the lagoon waters and a weir that is now Lions Drive. ANZAC Park is a popular destination with lots of activities to share with the family. Picnic tables and BBQs spread around make it a place to spend the day. The playgrounds have a skate park for the older children, and more traditional playground equipment in a shaded play area. It caters for those with a disability with the inclusion of a liberty swing. The bird life around the lagoon is plentiful. Near the ANZAC Park sign is a stone memorial with a plaque commemorating the original Maryborough Memorial Stones, which no longer exist. The memorial was the main meeting place for the KMVVA Association until they reunited with the Maryborough RSL Sub Branch some years ago.
