This is the best spot in albany to take photos whether it be sunrise or sunsets or stormfronts coming in. Its just gorgeous up there with the history and the views. It does require alot of steps so its also a good place to exercise.

Amazing view with a very sombre reminder. A quick climb up the stairs provides an amazing view of around Albany and the plaque, statue and information gives viewers insight as to what the memorial represents.

One of the rare moments in life where the place spoke to my heart. It bought a tear of gratitude to my eye. Spectacular monument in stunning location with the long staircase leading towards the headland overlooking Albany harbour where so many Aussie soldiers and their horses left to serve The Empire. The horses never returned. Many of the soldiers... More

This is very close to the Anzac centre, it is a decent walk to the top, probably 5 minutes up a lot of steps but well worth it. The plaque tells you all about the origins of the statue and the views are breathtaking, the walk up the stairs is sign posted with lots of reading of WW1 history, a... More

No trip to Albany would be complete without coming here. The walk up from the car park is quite moving with the words of various different soldiers and nurses telling stories and recollections of the war. The memorial itself is very beautiful and the view from here is stunning across the bays. A perfect place for an excellent memorial.

Drove up here after visiting the Whaling Station in the Morning (Excellent). took the wrong turning as had planned to visit the ANZAC Memorial. glad we didn't miss this. Whether you are interested in the History of who/what it commemorates or not. It is a great lookout with fantastic views all over Albany and the Bay. It is worth the... More
