Melbourne should be proud of this monument. It is set next to the beautiful botanical gardens and has lovely views of the City. Visit this place, if for no other reason than to show that you remember those who gave so much for you.

The Site has various memorabilia from wars in which Australia has been involved. Its a very interesting and sobering memorial. Well worth a visit and to pay your respects.

Amazing place, both to look at and the content. So interesting (perhaps a bit depressing), reading all the information about Australia’s involvement in the war. My kids loved it (16 and 12).
