Stopped off here for a visit whilst on a garden tour. Beautifully kept memorial garden, you can't help but being moved. There is a land train which tours the garden and you can get of and on as you please.

What a lovely place for reflection and to rember those that have fallen. Full of memorials big and small. You will not see all of it in one day. The land train and the buggy tour is recommended

A moving and emotional experience, the most poignant being the shot at dawn memorial. Everyone should visit her at least once.

Hi Barry, Thanks for your question, we don't allow people to cycle around the Arboretum grounds. We have a number of cycle racks at the entrance of our building where you can securely store your bike if you choose to visit.
