“Part of heritage........Plus WW2 runaways on Stuart Highway”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

A special place.
On my next trip I will spend more time and absorb.

The military heritage is very very special in Top End.

Key anniversarys are now attracting world wide attention for Darwin and surrounds.
Especially significant for families who have made sacrifices during great wars.

With the recent US Marine base opening in Darwin we will all get the opportunity to learn more about our recent past.

Have a view of Bombing of Darwin documentary.

“Make sure you visit!”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

What a wonderful place this is! The cemetery is so well maintained and it is extremely satisfying to see how much love and respect is shown to our fallen. Allow yourself some time to walk along and read the headstones. It is very moving and makes you realise how very young some of them were. Make a special trip from Darwin to visit, you will not be sorry.

“very peaceful place”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

this place is just beautiful and the obvious care and attention must be comforting for those who have memory this serves - well worth leaving the highway for
