This is a well kept war cemetery, we stopped here by boat while visiting other attractions. Nothing else to see other than Cemetery.

Very moving place to visit. Well maintained final resting place for those who paid the ultimate price. The War Cemetery is next door to the museum. It is really worthwhile to visit the museum in conjunction with a visit to the cemetery.
