“A true Memorial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2015 NEW

Give yourself time(a least a day), we did the walk first & then a guided tour at the Memorial to get our bearings.
Be aware of the grief, so many died

“Make this a bucket list special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2015 NEW

Every Australian should visit the memorial and thank their lucky stars that many ordinary people both military and civilian have shown extraordinary courage to give us the freedom we enjoy today. We were there for the Anzac day memorials and all were presented with wonderful reverence to the past. In particular the indigenous service was a beautiful tribute to a very special group of Anzacs and deserving of much higher media profile. This place is not a glorification of war but a reminder that liberty has to be earned by real people at great cost. I congratulate the entire team on the outcome but in particular the revamped WW1 section is excellent.
