Desert Corps Memorial

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The Desert Corps Memorial near the top of Mount Clarence is an impressive war memorial commemorating those who fought at Gallipoli during World War One. Pose for a photo in front of the horsemen and their horses and read about the colourful history of the memorial and understand the significance behind its position at Mount Clarence. Look out for the bullet marks on the stonework which were attained during the Suez Riots of 1956.

Situated near the summit of Mount Clarence, the site provides spectacular panoramic views across Princess Royal Harbour, King George Sound and Middleton Bay. The harbour is said to be one of the most beautiful natural harbours in the world. If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of the humpback whales on their migration to warmer waters.

Mount Clarence is located in Albany, four and a half hours drive south of Perth. Stay for at least a few days and explore Albany and the stunning Great Southern region.
