Amazing views, walks, scenery, history. A short walk or a long walk, your choice. The views are awesome, not only of the town but of Magnetic Island and many other islands too.

The war displays were well set out, easy to read and interesting. The whole place is in a beautifully maintained garden and the view from the top is great.

The museum here is free to enter but not always open. The volunteers that offer up loads of information are very friendly and informative! Really worth a visit if you're interested in war history and also the history of Townsville's involvement in the wars.

Best use of public land that I have seen for a long time. So many men passed through Jezzine on their way to war. All those men who did not return and paid the ultimate price for loyalty to their country. The avenue of trees...More
