Truly a respectful and honorable memorial to our fallen. Serene surroundings well laid out and accessible to both young and old.

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.

With the 100 year commemorations of the departure of the convoys taking Australian and New Zealand soldiers to Gallipoli being held as a major event in Albany Nov 2014, the Mt Clarence site and the Old Forts have undergone significant upgrades. In addition to the stories of the soldiers, there's much to see and do up at the Historis Precinct... More

Every town in Australia has a war memorial but there are few like this. The climb up the stairs is rewarded by wonderful views of the harbour and the stunning Desert Corps Memorial statue. A wonderful monument to the sacrifice and achievements of the Corps.

Liked the stories all the way up the stairs and the view from the top also the way the convoys were illustrated to show where they were in the harbour before they left for Europe. It is great to see those big companies who have donated to the projects.

I really enjoyed the experience of visiting here...the carpark is surrounded my memorial trees and they're a bit different to the surrounding bush. The kangaroo paws were finishing but there were other wildflowers and eucalypts in bloom. We climbed the stairs which was nowhere as challenging as I'd expected and found the new info boards well placed and interesting. Looking... More

We expected to see only a monument but we also saw beautiful views from the top of the hill. We also learned about history and to remember the bravery of the soldiers. The kids also enjoyed and experienced the heavy artilleries. We liked it there .
