We came across the memorial quite by chance as we were walking on a trail in Miramar. This should be interesting for anyone intereted in the shared part of the history between Turkey and New Zealand. The view from the memorial is great.

There is a car park at the bottom and a walking trail to get to the top of the hill where the monument is. The walk is short and challenging (10-15 minutes) but once you get to the top the views are absolutely outstanding. On...More

Very sorry but not a Wellington person and don't know these details. Perhaps contact City Council or RSA.
