  • So much more than a memorial to those who gave their all in war. The arch and surrounding memorials provide a place to remember for those who lost someone and a place to learn and reflect for a new generation on some seemingly lost qualities in our society. Duty, Sacrifice for others, Loyalty are eye opening concepts to a facebook generation.... a place like this cuts through a dismissive and cynical easy response....it confronts you with the enormity of the sacrifices Australians have made. Beyond that.... the arch is surely a Ballarat Icon and an edifice which instantly identifies the "rat" to anyone who has lived here
  • Archview cafĂ© next to this wonderful monument was to die for. The food is all made insight and can feed ANYONE with flavoursome meals. Shame though. It should open at night.
  • Beautiful coffee hit the spot with a decadent cheesecake
  • One of the best avenues of honour with arch and roll of honour. State heritage registered but unsympathetic development ruins setting.
  • Beautiful
