Memorial Arch At Eastern View Reviews & Ratings
Place for kayaking and boating. This is a quality location with great views off shore and back to the bushes. Different tour companies runs tours periodically where you can ascend the dizzying heights to get an even better view. Plenty of history to this place, must go. I would definitely recommend it to anyone travelling to Australia. One can also plan for overnight stay. This location have multiple accommodation. In off season, anyone can look for cheap accommodations
I like that place. I visited 3 times in a year. Especially I go for long ride to my car and some memorial picture for me. I like waterfall in rainy seasons and I prefer that. This place is awesome and one of the best place near the Melbourne. I like that place for family and friends. Helicopter ride is awesome and I prefer that one. In vacation I’m not prefer This place because it’s very busy and you can’t park your car as well as very difficult for food.
Wooden Arch . Said to starting point of Gold Coast road. Statue of Labourers in Honour of their Hard work in Building the road is worth appreciation. And it serves as a photo shoot point too. No public toilets nearby. No eatery in sight. But a busy lively spot...
It's a nice place for a picture but apart from the sign I think that's all you get. Try taking a picture without getting someone on your frame (almost impossible) There's also a good view over the ocean obviously. Before going there try to inform yourself of why and how this road was created and why creating a memorial. It would make more sense to you once you get there.
Five stars for the men who build this road under difficult circumstances and also five stars for the road itself. The result of the efforts of the returned servicemen after the Great War is the largest war memorial in the world and an amazing road. I think it is best to honor the fallen fellow soldiers by stopping at this monument and then enjoying this beautiful road to the full.
