The Fremantle War Memorial, located at Monument Hill in Fremantle, is surrounded by beautiful rose gardens and well maintained lawns. It offers almost 360-degree views of Fremantle, and is an ideal vantage point to look out over Fremantle Harbour and Garden Island.
Take some time out to relax on the lawns and enjoy the view whilst you reflect the true meaning of the memorial and appreciate the meaningful architecture.
Designed by architects J F Allen and C H Nicholas, it is constructed out of Toodyay Stone and was built and unveiled in 1928. A time capsule was placed in the monument on the day of unveiling.
Surrounded by an eleven acre reserve, the main memorial is encircled on three sides by eight smaller memorials. The memorial commemorates World War I and II, the Korean War, Malayan Emergency and Vietnam War.
Fremantle is a 30 minute drive from the city, with regular train and bus services. Monument Hill is a 20 minute walk from the train station, or you can take one of the many buses servicing this route.
