A surprise!

Be prepared to walk further up stairs and to the look out. This was under repair when I visited but fantastic views all around.

One of the best places I've been to in Western Australia. I love history. A bit of a climb up the steps but well worth it. I loved the Lone Pine at the side which was grown from seeds from the Lone Pine in Galipolli. Don't miss it, take the kids you'll all learn something. Makes one grateful

Besides the fact that the memorial was under scaffolding, due to it's being cleaned, the summit is a great place to view Albany and surrounds. It is easily accessible to those with infirmities or the aged, who can be taken right up to the top next to the memorial almost. Well worth a visit! Can be very cold & windy... More

The whole area around the Desert mounted Corps Memorial and the National ANZAC Museum is beautifully set out. The memorial itself is striking and very moving and there is a wealth of information provided to explain the history of the memorial and the reason for its relocation in Albany. The location of the memorial is also spectacular with panoramic views... More

Enjoy the beautiful stories and walk up to the memorial. Look out for the skinks on the way up and the friendly magpies. The views from the top are stunning - and if you go on a sunny day they are even more spectacular.

We recently visited the Anzac Memorial in Albany. What a moving time it was. The centre is extremely well organized and you get a card that links to an actual soldier and you can follow his story through the time he / she were overseas. The soldier I followed had a very tough time, getting injured then suffering illness and... More

The view is excellent from here as long as you get a clear day. The steps are well worth the effort.

Before you get thoroughly immersed in the National Anzac Centre, turn left at the roundabout and drive up the Avenue of Honour. Stop along the way and read some of the engraved metal stations on each side of the road which leads eventually to the Memorial. It has a huge stone base surmounted by a bronze statue of 2 soldiers... More
