Tobruk Pool is a recently renovated aquatic sports facility. It was originally dedicated to memorialize the World War II and, particularly, to the memory of the 'Rats of Tobruk' of Second World War fame. As part of the centenary commemorations of the World War I it was rededicated to include veterans of that period. A contemporary steel pipe sculpture at the entrance is intended to portray the barbed wire entanglements that became such a feature of warfare on the French Belgian border in 1914-1918. Associated interpretive plaques outline related military history.
Tobruk Pool also forms part of the Cairns Region ANZAC Trail. To see more information about this trail, see the below links:
