“The WWI Memorial Park”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

This is one of the key parts of Albany to our minds. The ANZAC troops left Albany prior going to the Middle East in 1914-15, this was their last view of Australia and so many did not return home. The Park is located on top of the main hill overlooking Albany and King Georges Sound where the troopships and their naval escorts were anchored. It is a very moving place with a wonderful monument to the Desert Corps plus the views. Certainly worth the visit, the climb up the stairs, and some time for reflection.

“Great views”
Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

Long walk up the stairs but a great view of Albany, the harbor and surrounding area. No entry/admission fee so great value!

“True Blue Australians.”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Men and boys who left the shores of Australia and who saw Albany as their last bit of Australian soil, are to be respected for ever ... Lest we Forget! We have the peace we have today because of these devoted people.

“Moving”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

It was moving to see all the hilltop memorials in Albany. We arrived just before sunset. It was quite eerie to look out where my grandfather and his mates assembled with their NZ counterparts and left in ship convoys to Gallipoli. So many WA volunteers left their homes too and fought without their horses, so seeing a mounted horse statue brought that footnote in history to the fore.
