HMAS SYDNEY MEMORIAL
Oct. 2020
If your into anything ANZAC this is a must to see. The metal covering represents the 600+ souls lost on the HMAS SYDNEY in WW2.

Well worth visiting and reading all the information on the walls surrounding the memorial.

Respectful tribute to the HMAS Sydney crew
Sep. 2021
After a short, steep climb we reached the HMAS Sydney memorial. It occupies a high position and looks over the City of Geraldton. Very interesting and everything done in a respectful manner.

Don't miss out on visiting here

An amazing memorial to the HMAS Sydney 11. Make sure you visit here while in Geraldton and read the story and the significance of the individual displays. It is very easy to find this memorial as it seems to stand out from many points in the town.

Simply a must do visit when in Geraldton
Jul. 2021
The HMAS Sydney II Memorial is a must do visit for any tourist to Geraldton. By itself it is great, but to get the best out of it, go on one of the morning tours that they have, led by volunteers. It was so informative especially on how the memorial was designed and built, and the reasons for many parts of the memorial. The lady we had was excellent and was more than happy to share her knowledge. We had been there previously, but the tour guide made it much more interesting and memorable. Australia's largest naval loss in history. Very sad, but very happy that the memories of the sailors is recognised in such a wonderful way

Elegant, symbolic memorial.
Jul. 2021 • Couples
A thoughtfully constructed memorial, made in two parts. The first, the dome of seagulls (one for each lost seaman), ship's prowl, woman lopking out to sea for her missing one and curved walls of their names, was completed before the finding if The Sydney.
The beautiful pool of remembrance, surrounded by the same number of seagulls etched into granite, with water cascading over stepped circles, a single seagull with its wingtip touching the coordinates on a map at the point of the sinking was added after the finding of the wreck.
A very moving memorial, rich in symbolism. The creators are to be congratulated.

This is a beautiful place and we got to enjoy it without many tourists around.
Lovely place to spend some quiet time and to remember those that gave everything.
