The ANZAC Memorial Archway commemorates those who served in World War One. The project to replace the old archway received more than $34,000 funding through the ANZAC Centenary Local Grants Program.

The archway features a black granite façade, steel columns, military crest and a base made from local stones, with a plaque listing the names of the soldiers who left Cooktown to fight in World War One. 

The archway is the first in Australia to feature a 61cm high bronze World War One digger statue and rising sun that was designed and created specifically for the Centenary.
