Upon entering Mount Clarence, one cannot help notice the memorial trees planted on both sides of the road. Yes, trees to remember rather than headstones. I cannot imagine a more fitting tribute.

Well worth the visit, well constructed & informative. Very moving about the tales of lost souls & heros among both our men and horses during their battles.

Well laid out and very informative. Good to see the memorial back where it belongs overlooking the bay where so many embarked. Fantastic views of the area and a thoughtful presentation of facts pertaining to the war.

This is a nice memorial with some good history to learn about. The walk to it is good and the views from the top are pretty good as well.

Very moving as it is a memorial to the Light Horse. Beautiful view over Albany. Would recommend a visit.

Well worth the drive up to the monument. Spectacular views of the Albany bay. If your a mountain cyclist - great track back down but I wouldn’t fancy the ride up.
