Albury 2640, New South Wales
The Monument Hill War Memorial sits atop of the hill at the western end of Albury’s main street providing stunning views of the city and surrounding region.
Designed by architect Louis Harrison, the monument was unveiled on Anzac Day in 1925 in dedication of the men and women who served in World Was l.
“… The night was perfect – clear weather and no moon. The crowd gathered at the junction of Dean, Thurgoona and Garden Streets. The main speaker was General John Jackson Paine who switched off the street lighting. A bugler, half way up the hill played the last post in the darkness and, as the sound died away, a hidden electrician brought the lights on slowly and the Memorial came into view, high above the crowd floating on air. It was a solemn and inspiring sight.”
A short distance below the Monument is a Memorial Bowl to honour the men and women who served in World War ll.
