Good Location

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 !

Low Key Memorial
Jun. 2019 • Couples
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 ???

Small memorials to HMAS Sydney and German Kormorant
May 2019 • Couples
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.
