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 The climb is a gradual one with lots of historical references to encourage rest stops, which makes it accessible for all ages and fitness levels.

This really is a must see. When you reach the top and look out over the bay it really is moving. Very well put together.

This is now a very well done drive and memorial. I found it clean and tidy. The lookout on the way up was much needed and I found a path at the top where you could walk out on to the rock face overlooking Spencer Park and Bluff Rock

This memorial is actually a replica/renovation of the original memorial that was erected in Port Said, Egypt, but met with foul play. It holds a suitable place of significance atop Mt Clarence in Albany. The whole ANZAC memorial park is very well planned & set out, with many plaques around to read & give you information.
