  • With covid, we only saw a couple of people in our whole time at the park. Lots of markers throughout the park.  more »
  • Excellent educational experience well worth the visit. You are able to follow the battle at each placard and visualize what these men saw in battle.  more »

  • Well worth a stop. The visitors centre itself is easily worth up to an hour and the rangers are very friendly and knowledgeable. If it's available, the ranger-led car caravan tour is highly recommended. The downside is you miss much of the site (though you could always double-back later) but it's very sobering to hear a real person describe how things would have been and to read memos and letters from the soldiers themselves. A great way to bring it to life.
  • A lot of great history recorded here! If you are interested in history this is a must visit place. I have lived in the area my entire life and always find something new to do or see here. Their guides are very knowledgeable and helpful. If you play Pokémon go or Harry Potter’s new game you will find everything here. Please observe all posted signs and mind others trying to learn. A great place to take middle aged kids (9-15).
