Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I thought was a lovely tribute. A really impressive monument on the tallest hill in Albany. Plenty of parking available along with some great views.

The Desert Mounted Corps Memorial is in Albany WA if you are in Albany this is a must see in my opinion. This memorial is decorated to the Anzac, ( Australian & New Zealand troops ) who left Australia in WW 1 from Albany with their horses to fight in the Great War to end all wars & we all know how that ended up. The bronze statue of two troopers & horses is a magnificent statue, over 100 steps to reach it but well worth the effort and wonderful views over Albany. For less mobile people I think you can drive up the side road & have the driver drop you off & drive back down to the car park.

A memorial with a history that is not widely publicised. The many steps to get to it adds to the feeling of respect that those brave souls who were in this campaign deserve.

There are lots of steps up to the memorial and road access is usually not permitted, so not sure if this is at all suitable for those that are mobility impaired, but you get an excellent view of Albany and the surrounding area, and there is a magnificent statue at the end of the walk, dedicated to the memory of the Desert Mounted Corps.

Very moving history behind this place. Reason to remind us not to go to war. So many innocent young lives lost.

Got to walk up after you parked your cam. No parking at the top except handicap parking and buses.

Quite interesting to see the Memorial, as well as the inscriptions. You will need to walk a lot of stairs.

Get ready for the long walk up the stairs, but well worth the climb. Views fantastic, and the flowers and fragrance was just lovely

So many young men, full of hope and excitement, left Albany's shore in 1914-15, never to return.
This is an impressive memorial to them and their horses and also tells of early commemorations of ANZAC Day, which is a strong part of Australian culture.

If you enjoy history, go and have a look at this. It’s done very nicely. A bit of information to read about the statue etc. and it’s nice to walk around.

The Memorial is builton a hill overlooking the Harbour and is a tribute to those that served in WW1 and who left for the Middle East from Albany.

It is extremely well put together and one of the horses is supposed to be Sandy, the only horse to be returned from the Middle East.

Well worth a visit.
