A monument placed in Hyde Park Corner,close to Wellington Arch.Interesting through its significance but not very impressive.It consists in many stone slabs forming a kind of curved wall.There are also another few war memorials very close.

Take the time to stop and look and reflect that Australians gave their lives to helped keep Britain from German rule. It's a well designed memorial with a stunning water feature. Go look.

A stunning, moving memorial truly worth a visit if you're in the vicinity. The view is different depending on how close you get to the memorial.....and the water feature is beautiful. Do go.
