A wonderfull tribute to Anzacs with a beautiful view over the surrounding area, being on top of the highest hill in the neighbourhood. Views over the Albany port and township and nearby islands.

This memorial is a wonderful tribute, it has been so well done with lots of information as you drive up the hill to the site as well. Spectacular views once you reach the top and lovely and easy to walk around and read the plaques.

If you are attending this arrive very early (at 0300) in order to have standing room. Not recommended there fore for little kids due to the waiting.... More

As a former Light Horseman, visiting this monument is always a moving experience for me. It is a reminder of the sacrifices made by so many, and the crucial role Albany played in our history. For those not interested in history, the view of Albany's beautiful coastline is worth the climb

I was moved to tears by the stories from ex-soldiers and letters from those who never returned, and the poignant statue at the top. I was stunned to find that Albany was the departure point for most of Australia's WW1 soldiers, and so was the last... More

We were surprised to find his fantastic memorial here and see the fairly new works that have transformed it into a very moving place. Make sure you do the walk from the lower car park to get the full feel and the information on the impact WW I had on Albany.

I am totally in love with this place. It is very spiritual for me. When I look over that amazing vista over the ocean and imagine the convoy of ANZACS in King George Sound it sends shivers up my spine. Of course the actual memorial is incredible.
