Well worth visiting this stunning memorial to all those lost on the sinking of HMAS Sydney. It is simple but creative and a poignant reminder of the cost of war.

A must see overlooking the lovely town. A well done Memorial for the sailors who lost their lives. And a place to remember for us all.

A beautiful memorial to those who lost their lives. Really informative when there, great views, lovely fountain, and the gulls roof is stunning. A must do. We hadn't even ever heard about this ship beforehand.

An hour spent at the memorial made the drive to and from Perth all worthwhile. It's a poignant reminder of the senselessness of war, the sacrifices made by the families of the time, and a push to work for peace. It complements the displays in...More

Beautifully constructed with gorgeous views. Worthy of the souls who perished all those years ago. The dome itself is just beautiful and the plaque with all the names and ages of the dead heartbreaking.

Maybe your cruise line will provide bus transport to the memorial. Otherwise a taxi would be the way to get there. There were guides on the day we went.
