This is a nice sculpture near the garden centre. Albert Borella was one of Albury's finest. Good to see him remembered this way. Plenty of parking available and a nice lunch nearby at Peards cafe.

We visited and were amazed at what a local business owner built themselves to honor an Australian War Hero. There was also some great information inside the cafe. War Memorial quality in a country location.

A large and very impressive memorial which appears to have been privately built as part of the Peards nursery/cafe/garden anf gift complex. As it is always surrounded by flowers from the nursery it is really quite beautiful..

The memorial is nice sure, it is a bit out of town and not worth a trek out there just for this. A simple and small memorial outside the nursery.

After a disappointing experience with Indian Chimney (Albury) the night before, this place was a breath of fresh air, a hidden gem. The service was excellent and the food superb. Servings were more than adequate. The atmosphere and surrounds were excellent.

Drive, ride your bike or walk up this hill to this huge monument. We visited on a very early, foggy morning.
