  • This has to be one of the best war memorials I have seen. The views are fantastic and the whispering wall a beautiful touch. 
  • We mainly went to this area for a morning stroll and to take photo"s, it 's a restfull area to chill and enjoy as part of your trip 
  • Scenic view Though it's summer and the Sun is blazing hot but the windy can be otherwise. Good for lying on the well manicured grass! Amazing

  • 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
