This memorial is beautifully done, representing all conflicts Australians have been in. Lovely Gardens to look at and places to sit and enjoy the view or just for quiet contemplation. Really well done.

Fantastic memorial to Australia's fallen service people on a deservedly prominent location with outstanding views over Parkes. Take a walk along the memorial path to the Vietnam monument.

Walked up to the memorial from the centre of town. Well worth the walk, great views and in winter the sunsets. The memorial itself is a testament to the people of Parkes and their memory of the sacrifice of Australian service personnel.

What a lovely place that pays tribute to those who have served our nation. Beautiful views over Parkes. Nice touches with garden beds made up for each conflict replicating the plants that would be found in those areas.

The memorial surrounds are very well kept and offer covered seating to reflect the somber surroundings as well as the magnificent view. The garden memorial that depicts the fauna of each battleground was excellent. Kudos to the keepers

The War Memorial in Canberra is one of those places that everyone should visit at least once. Go with one of the incredibly knowledgeable guides and learn so much about our country and its people. A whole day is just about enough time.
