I think its great to keep the war memories alive, but really not much to see. Its a short drive to the cemetery, and its been well kept.

Was really surprised by it. Immaculate and very moving and respectful. We spent a lot of time wandering through the area. Highly recommend a visit if in the area

This cemetery is absolutely impeccably maintained and it is a moving experience to walk through the grounds and read the tomb stones, with so many of the dead being men and women of a very young age. RIP and thank you to all those who gave their lives to stop the invasion from the north during World War 2

Mature aged couple who have now visited this site 3 times (over past 7 years) and each time the significance, appeal and high standard of maintenance never ceases to amaze. Recommended for all travellers...can take as little or as long as you choose. The site is something not to be missed..regardless of any direct family connection or not.

Bridget, the custodian is passionate about "her boys", she knows every soul in the cemetery and their stories. It is a fitting tribute to brave military and civilian heroes. A tranquil place where you can reflect on the past.
