Excellent place to commemorate with fantastic views

Went there with locals who told us the history of the place. Very interesting especially to know that each year there is a memorial service there at dawn for memorial day.

Well worth the effort to see the memorial at close hand. The views over Albany spectacular. Thought provoking thinking about the sacrifice of those involved.

Obviously one of the reasons for visiting here is because of the military history and memorials located at the site, and upgrades in recent years have really made it very beautiful. But the highlight for me are the amazing 360 degree views that you get from the lookout at the very top. Yes there is a lengthy set of stairs... More

Powerful reminder of a little known but important episode in Allied first world war history. Great views around King George Sound and Oyster Harbour

Interesting place with beautiful views. Enjoyed the walk up although u can also drive up there. Loved reading all the soldiers comments on the plaques during the climb up and of course if u drive u would miss this.

Despite the steep access road (buses from Albany drop off and return point at the monument) the trip is worth it with a moving memorial and magnificent lookouts across the bay. A reasonable standard of mobility is required for these and there are ramps available.

Wonderful place to show the kids the ANZAC spirit. Amazing views of Albany and the bayside. Nicely presented and can be seen in a short time if rushed.
