Nice building that serves as a memorial place for the soldiers. The best thing is that you have a beautiful view of the city from the balcony.
A very well done public memorial. Don’t miss the exhibits downstairs for decades of Australia history all free of charge! And make sure to check out the demonstration of the ceremony (I forget the exact name) of what the light does on Veterans Day.
Great place to roam around with someone passionate about war history. Its open until 5 on weekdays. But if you just want to take a picture outside you can go anytime. City view from the top is amazing and nice place to hangout with friends.
