We were very impressed with the entire memorial park and the efforts taken to establish and maintain it. As an Australian I felt very emotionally affected by the history of the POWs and the local people that helped. Their bravery and endurance against such barbaric treatment was humbling to read. To stand on the land where some of this took place was surreal.

A war memorial from WW II. Nicely laid ou gardens with native plants and remains from the war. Worth a quick visit.

Well maintained memorial park steeped in incredible history & atrocites. As an Australian I was absolutely unaware of this significant time in history.

Very sad but worth a visit to honour the soldiers who lost their lives on the death march very sad that these extremes occurred so close to end of war
