The Naracoorte Town Square, in the centre of Naracoorte, are a popular gathering spot for the community as well as providing an ideal spot to stop and enjoy lunch.
The Town Squares are home to the Naracoorte Soundshell and the Naracoorte War Memorial. At the War Memorial take a moment to reflect on the sacrifice of people who have served Australia and complete a lap of the paved Walk of Honour. The War Memorial is the focal point for Anzac Day and Remembrance Day commemorations and includes a gun-howitzer.
The Walk of Honour lists all the people from the Naracoorte district who served in the First World War (WWI) and in the Light Horse Regiment, the Second World War (WWII), Vietnam War and Korean War. The Walk of Honour is a reproduction of the people who are recognised on the honour boards in the Naracoorte Town Hall. The Walk of Honour provides a lasting memorial to people from the Naracoorte district who served our country.
The Naracoorte Soundshell, located in what was known as MacIntosh Square, is the focal point for community activities such as Australia Day celebrations, Christmas Carols and the Taste the Limestone Coast Festival
There are tables and chairs available for picnics and the green lawn and shade is great for stretching your legs or relaxing. There are also public toilets.
The Naracoorte Town Square is the starting point for the Naracoorte Heritage Trail which focuses on points of historical interest in and around Naracoorte. There are ten markers around the Naracoorte Town Square telling the stories behind how and why Naracoorte was established in its location, and how it has evolved since its establishment 150 years ago. Each marker tells the story of the building or site which can be viewed from the square.
Adjacent to the Naracoorte Town Square is the Ormerod Street play area which links to the Naracoorte Creek Walk.
