Take the time to stop and investigate. This is an excellent honour to those fallen soldiers. The avenue of trees, each with s plaque and a poppy attached to the plaque is quite moving. Wheelchair friendly. Kid friendly. Good parking in service roads.

It was a cold and rainy day when we visited. The place is well looked after and maintained. I love reading the history and reading the the places where Australia has served.
