The memorial has been totally upgraded and wheelchair is no problem. Fantastic views and a wonderfully moving memorial statue. A most moving dawn service is a highlight on ANZAC Day.(bring your tissues and take time to reflect on bravery and the futility of war)

Lots of history to read about. The area has recently been upgraded and is world standard. You have fantastic views of Albany town, mountains in the distance and the harbour and King George Sound. Well worth a visit.

Who ever designed this place is an absolute genius. It is completely and utterly a real tribute to our horses that supported our men. If your in Albany, you have to visit this place. There is no cost to enjoy a bit of history and the most amazing views in Albany.

Always a stunning site regardless of the weather. What wonderful foresight to have such a moving sculpture at the birthplace of the Dawn Service.

In a commanding position high above Albany, this is a must see. On the short walk up through the woodland there are informative plaques and quotations from famous Australians like Banjo Paterson. The memorial at the top is magnificent and the 360 degree views are spectacular. We went in the late afternoon and there was hardly anyone there. This is... More

I always go back there to see the beautiful view over Albany. I saw they upgraded it a little which is gorgeous and even took away some stairs that u have to cline to get to top which is a bonus. U can also drive up if unable to take stairs.

This is a lovely memorial. The rule of thumb is that if a horse has both feet in the air the rider died in battle. It one foot is in the air the rider died of wounds received in the battle. If all four feet are on the ground the rider did not die. Wonderful views over the bay and... More

This is a site that anyone who has an interest in what these men and women endured would approve of. As I previously stated, it is very moving.

The views over the bay are well worth the climb as is the history lesson you get on the way. The climb is a gradual one with lots of historical references to encourage rest stops, which makes it accessible for all ages and fitness levels.
