This has to be one of the most poignant memorials to the service of our Australian WW1 Expeditionary Forces. The 360 degree views across the Princess Royal Harbour, King George Sounds and out to the Vancouver Peninsula is spectacular. You stand there and imagine the thoughts of the Diggers departing on their ships looking back at what was for some... More

You don't have to be fit to visit this display and lookout, but it helps. For those who can't handle a climb there is road access but for most of us there are a lot of stairs to the memorial statue and lookout. It really is worth the climb.

Well worth the visit to see how this site has been reformed. Has a lot of steps but well spaced with regular platforms & information panels along the way so not overly tiring.

Lovely site and memorial, great views for up there. Well worth walking up there. Loved the fact that everything is so well maintained. The trees along the road are a solemn reminder of the war.

Good views are a added bonus when visiting this memorial. If you can walk the avenue of trees that lead up to this memorial it's well worth it too, but if you are time poor or physically unfit you can just visit the memorial by driving up to the dramatic memorial. The larger car park located at the base of... More

Fantastic views of all of Albany. You can drive most of the way and less than a hundred steps to the the top. Worth the effort.

Well kept national monument area. Has an somber eerie feeling but this is in keeping with the meaning of the site.

It's a rather steep walk up the many steps (you can drive if disabled) but well worth it. Beautifully maintained with very informative boards and the view is amazing.

Definitely worth the walk up the steps to learn about our gallant military's past. A well laid out memorial with good access, except for those with a guide dog ... The metal grates at the top are not friendly to a dog's feet - a poor design.
