  • An important reminder of why we live in (relative) peace and in memory of those who sacrificed so we do.
  • Great place to set as a meeting point. Actual cenotaph has historical value as a monument to those that have died for the country.
  • Solemn and beautiful historical memorial.
  • It's location and the recent ANZAC memorial day, has left the memorial drapped in wreaths. LEST WE FORGET

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
