“Historical significance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

The cemetery is worth a visit to read about some of the fallen soldiers. If you are stopping at Adelaide river road house for food and fuel, why not and go here as it's not far away.

“Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Well cared for gardens. Pleasant feel to the area. Grab some food from the Adelaide River and enjoy a picnic lunch in the lush tropical surrounds. You wont be sorry.

“Very moving!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

If this place doesn't move you, you must have no heart. I've seen war cemeteries all over the world and they still cause a lump in my throat. Especially moving is the graves of those who lost their lives in the Post Office. The little museum at the side of the cemetery is definitely worth a look too.

“War cemetary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Beautiful resting place for our diggers. Well maintained, and very peaceful. I took a group of school kids and were all moved.
