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
