Two kookaburras gave the impression they felt they were in a very safe place while spending an evening at the Cronulla War Memorial in Monro Park.

The birds captivated commuters walking home from the rail station and parents with children out for a stroll.

They were unfazed as people approached for a close look, to take photos with their phones or to say hello.

A curious look from a turned head was the only noticeable reaction.

The kookaburras danced around the commemorative plaques and foraged in the newly planted gardens during a welcome break in the rain on Wednesday last week.

Their presence seemed fitting in this special place that remembers residents of the area who gave their lives for Australia.

It was also a reminder Anzac Day is fast approaching.

Thousands of people attend the Dawn Service at Cronulla War Memorial each year.

The march departs from Cronulla RSL Club in Gerrale Street at 5.15am, with the service starting in Monro Park at 5.30am.

Cronulla War Memorial originally stood on Kingsway but was moved to Monro Park in 1940.

As part of the Anzac Centenary celebrations, a series of plaques was added in July, 2015, to commemorate defining battles in which Australia was involved in World War 1.
