    This is an incredible place to visit...not just for the humbling war memorial -which is worth visiting all on it's own...but the views are rather special.

    Designed by the Architect Louis Harrison, the site was chosen by the town planner Charles Reade. The monument is a white concrete tower, in the form of a tapered lighthouse and surmounted by a 'torch of liberty'. This torch is 1.8 meters high and faced with 40 panes of prismatic glass. During the day sunlight plays through this glazing giving the torch the illusion it is lit.

    On Anzac Day 1925 General Paine opened this...which makes sense because the bathroom facilities at the site have an Art Deco appearance.

    When the Great War broke in out in July 1914 J.J.Paine volunteered for service. In 1915 he was despatched to Melbourne to command 2,700 troops on the Ceramic, the largest troopship that left Australian shores. A further command of 2,200 troops on the Euripides brought him in touch with the Anzac Mounted Division then operating in Egypt, Sinai and Palestine. He was awarded the rank of full Colonel, then the rank of Brigadier-General. He held the 1915 Star, the General Service and Victory Medals and the Victoria Decoration. An interesting thing to note about J.J. was that he was educated at the Albury Grammar School.

    There are information boards and plaques at the site, very thoughtfully laid out. The area in front of the memorial is a square that has room for many people to attend services. There is limited car parking available at the top, but you can walk to the memorial. (Particularly if you are a fitness junkie :) )

    From the memorial there are views of Albury township... two lookout areas exist... one is just down the slope next to some picnic tables and then the second is at the memorial itself. Both are going to offer you some impressive views.

    A pleasant place to visit, if you wish to get away from the crowds and shops etc, for an hour or so. easily accessible by foot, it has something for all the family - with a special children’s garden, which was pretty cool.

    What a great idea to combine a library and a museum, the displays had lots of historical information on the area and a great exhibition on Alice in Wonderland for the kids. Add to this the library a cool place to relax out of the heat to read a book or go on the net. The information centre is also there as it has moved from the building near the train station

    If you have driven from Sydney and are stopping overnight but arrive early enough it is well worth having this nice riverside stroll. Magnificent trees! Stretch the legs here.

    Very welcoming staff and such interesting exhibits. I love the little hidden sculptures for the kids to find. Well worth a look if you’ve got a hour or so to spend in Albury.

    The single staff member at the Tourist Information was very pleasant and knowledgeable. There was a fair amount of literature that she gave us to study for our cycling on the nearby rail trails. It’s located near the railway station in Albury and is very central.

    I’ve seen some new, modern, large childrens playgrounds before but this one is just stunning and it’s big. If you have small children and want them to burn some energy, take them here. There is every type of childrens apparatus in the one place and was a very worthwhile visit.

    The walk or cycle along the riverbank is so gorgeous you run the risk of getting sucked into the bush and never returning. I just couldn't turn back because I didn't want to miss what was around the next bend. Gorgeous sandy riverbanks, wetlands, birds, birds, birds, and an utterly stunning sunny winter's day. I love the Murray! Who knew?

    Located out the front of a gardening shop and cafe this stunning memorial to an icon of Albury is such a fitting tribute. Not only to Albert Borella but to all those other Australians to be awarded the Victoria Cross.
