Well kept and maintained memorial, easy to find in the middle of town, close to the shops. The gardens are well looked after. There are many places to sit and reminiscence.

Stopped on the way through nice place to grab a coffee and a snack from the many bakeries and eateries nearby. Good public toilets and playground for the children.

A beautiful town, close to Melbourne, Geelong and the Great Ocean Road. Some wonderful buildings and parks in town and this square almost dominates the town with its central location. A good place to relax if you've had a long drive.

A little bit of peace and quiet in the cbd of Colac. Great place to sit in the shade of the trees and have a coffee and to reflect on the history surrounding the memorial.

A very serene and pretty place-especially when it is lit up at night. Public toilets located on the edge of the square

Perfect stop off and resting point if your travelling between Warrnambool and Melbourne. Ideally located on the main road in the centre of town so you don't have to deviate. Use the toilets ( always clean ), grab some takeaway at a nearby cafe, and...More
