We were there just before the navy is due in late October, so was spruced up nicely. Beautiful statue and the views are sublime. Easy to imagine all the troop ships in the harbour before they sailed to Egypt.

Amazing vista over the city. Climb the steps with its many stops on the way to give you more of a feel of what it was like to leave with the Anzacs in 1914. It is a very impressive memorial.

Expansive views over King George Sound, the original Desert Mounted Corps memorial from Egypt. The one in Canberra is a copy. Looking great for the Anzac Commemorations in Albany in Oct/Nov 2014.

We went up for the view on the advice of the tourist information centre. What we hadn't appreciated was the role of Albany in troop and supply transport in World War I. Worth a visit.

Really enjoyed this memorial, very well done. Beautiful views, but worst marked parking I have seen up the top. Watching people guess where they should park and then seeing them block the acrod parking could be prevented with a few marked bays.

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.

Very windy and an awesome reminder of terrible times. The location lends it self to a box of photos as the light changes dawn, day, afternoon. Site of the "Dawn-Service" every ANZAC day. 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
