We both loved the new walk to the top of Mt Clarence. So many insights into the soldiers minds. Albany has done a great job in the resurrection of this memorial. The new building of the Anzac Memorial around near the fortress was amazing. We loved listening to the lives of each person and there account of the journey they... More

I truly love heading up to the top of Mount Clarence and starting off with looking at the great statue of the Australian Light Horse Regiments - this statue was brought back from Port Said in Egypt where is was desecrated sadly..... They were the regiment which liberated the Land of Israel from the Ottoman Empire and this is special... More

This is a special place which does great credit to the forces it is meant to honour, and has spectacular panoramic views to boot. Access is first rate with a disable carpark at the side, and the site is extremely well maintained. A must visit spot in Albany

Congratulations to the people of Albany responsible for creating this terrific & fitting Memorial. The setting and views of King George Sound were amazing; but at the same time it was a solemn place of reflection.

A fitting tribute to the men of the light horse who gave so much (including many lives) during the first world war. We were lucky to be there over the centenary of the first Anzac fleet leaving Albany and when we went to the memorial on the Monday, the Police Mounted Horse were there having photos in fro of the...

This was a fabulous iconic place even before the renovations but now it is so much better. The views are always excellent. Take the 100steps from the bottom carpark or take the side road up to a smaller carpark. Easy access there for all ages. Don't forget to walk further up the hill to Padre Whites lookout. Anzac dawn services... More

Impressive monument to the "diggers" who sailed from Albany 100 years ago to take part in the Gallipoli campaign and WW1. Sobering reminder of that war and subsequent wars, set on a hill overlooking the beautiful King George Sound

It is an excellent facility for the memory of the ANZACS. Well worth the time to visit. It was not quite finished with landscaping being completed and will be a wonderful tribute to the fallen.

We were lucky to be able to drive right to the memorial by a side road. We were initially told that we would have to walk but there was a lot of work going on around the memorial and we were able to drive straight up. We are not lazy but my other half is recently out of hospital. The... More
