We visited and were amazed at what a local business owner built themselves to honor an Australian War Hero. There was also some great information inside the cafe. War Memorial quality in a country location.

The memorial is nice sure, it is a bit out of town and not worth a trek out there just for this. A simple and small memorial outside the nursery.

After a disappointing experience with Indian Chimney (Albury) the night before, this place was a breath of fresh air, a hidden gem. The service was excellent and the food superb. Servings were more than adequate. The atmosphere and surrounds were excellent.
