  • This memorial is very good. It covers all of the conflicts that NZ has been involved in. It is also free. 
  • Take some time out to pause and remember. A place of history yet reverence. Link it with a visit to the Great War Exhibition. 
  • This to me is a sacred site for all, from the tomb of the unknown soldiers to the humble woman and two children. May the rest in peace.
