This is probably one of the best kept cemeteries around and it's nice to see that the displays have been upgraded with an audiovisual presentation and new signage. Informative and very well done.

A stunning statement on what was hidden from Australian history for 50 years. A quiet place of reflection.

Had a fleeting visit, but long enough to appreciate the site. Well maintained, Interesting that a place so far from Darwin was integral in the recovery effort. Will spend a day or so in the area on a return visit.

It was a long drive to the War Cemetery but it was definitely worth it. It was very well maintained and there's a short video nearby on the bombing of Darwin and has boards explaining the history of the place. Definitely a place to see.
