On Anzac Day, a service is held at the memorial that attracts over 40,000 visitors. At this site, you can also visit the flame of remembrance and a pool of reflection, inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II in 2000.

  • Lovely view of downtown Perth. The lawns are well kept and make for a comfy lay. Palm trees and flowers in abundance make for happy feelings. A really old tree was moved to the park which is interesting to check out. Some really cool fountains and bridges are around the area.
  • This scenic spot made me fall completely in love with Perth.
  • Magnificent view. There is always a bit of rethoric on war memorials. We need Peace memorials too.
  • Fantastic view of Perth CBD and swan river. One of my favourite places in the city
  • Absolutely beautiful view... the surrounding gardens are a must see
