We went to the memorial on a beautiful sunny morning, and the view is spectacular. The memorial surrounds have been expertly upgraded and even though it is at the top of a large hill, it is fully accessible with disabled parking right next to it, and accessible pathways right up to the top lookout. Very impressed!

Its very impressive wonderful views I really like the the upgrades which have extended the memorial. Its good to walk up the steps but you can drive up to the memorial if required.

Like all Aussie memorials and public places it is kept beautifully clean and free from mindless people who feel that they have to contribute with tins of paint. The only tributes we saw were from passionate or grieving people who wanted to show that their loved ones were not forgotten. The views from the area above the monument are excellent.... More

Beautifully situated with information boards as you climb the steps to the memorial itself (Those with disabilities can take their cars all the way to the top). The Padre White lookout has stupendous views too.

We have visited Albany many times and always begin every visit by spending time at the summit of Mount Clarence - to enjoy the amazing view from the lookout, but also to quietly spend some time at the beautiful Desert Mounted Corps Memorial. Situated just below the summit and at the top of a long flight of stairs, this memorial... More

A steep set of steps lead to this beautiful site, not far from the National Anzac Centre. Visitors can avoid the climb by being dropped off by car at the top, but cars must be parked at about 200m away. At least the trip downhill is easier than the walk up. The views from the memorial are stunning.

Beautiful views, loads of history and love the new walkway. We were here as part of an ANZAC team building activity and raced each other up the stairs. FUN!!

This monument has been on Mt Clarence for years but it is still an especially moving monument with vastly improved information.
