Yeppoon War Memorial is a heritage-listed memorial avenue of trees in Normanby Street, James Street and Anzac Parade, Yeppoon, Shire of Livingstone, Queensland, Australia. It was built in 1921 and 1984. It was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 23 July 1999.
The monument, erected in 1952, commemorates those from the Yeppoon district who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.
In 2010 the Yeppoon War Memorial was restored and cleaned due to a partnership between Yeppoon RSL and the Queensland Government, with a Community Memorials Restoration grant assisting to finance the restoration of the memorial. The restored Yeppoon War Memorial was unveiled in September 2010.

There are many ANZAC walk memorials around Australia, but Emu Parks is unique as it wraps around the coast, offering fantastic views of the area. The coastal boardwalk meanders from the central sandstone historical pictographs up towards The Gatehouse, a moving floor-to-ceiling First World War storyboards including portraits of locals. Wander further up past silhouettes and Battle Markers towards a stunning coastal lookout then wraps around and ends at the Singing Ship.
The memorial pays tribute to the ANZAC’s in a way that offers visitors the chance to learn more about an important piece of history and remember those who have given their lives for us.
