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.

Great little commemorative monument but in dire need of maintenance. Hard to read names on the plaques.

Always good to learn more about our history, good or bad. Loved the memorial wall with all the men's names form HMAS Sydney II. Nice touch. Worth a look.

This is now a memorial with another site at Quobba Station closer to the site where vessel sank. Nice they have recognition of the Emden also. Easy Parking and a scenic spot !

Sadly it pales into insignificance when compared to Geraldton's memorial. But simple can be good ! If a couple of history boards were erected detailing the main points of the ship battle back in November 1941 and the tragic loss of all 645 hands onboard HMAS Sydney it would be a better stop. The Kormorant obelisk is a newer addition and adds a poignant counter point to the Sydney's and details the lost crewmen of the German Raider. Maybe Carnarvon's tourist board can look into upgrading the memorial for future generations ???

Both memorials are in close proximity to one another. The HMAS Sydney memorial, which incidentally is nowhere as good as the memorial in Geraldton, is quite simple. It is nicely constructed and gives the names of all the crew. Adjacent is the memorial to the German naval ship that had the battle with the Sydney; both ships ultimately sunk with Sydney losing all this crew but some Germans were rescued and taken to Carnarvon. Again the German memorial is quite simple. Access is easy including parking.
