Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Western Australia / Greater Perth / Perth / State War Memorial
Located on Mount Eliza and overlooking Perth Water, State War Memorial houses the Cenotaph, a well-known city landmark. Erected in honor of all Australian soldiers whose remains are buried elsewhere, the Cenotaph represents an "empty tomb." Anzac Day is a national holiday observed in April to honor Australians and New Zealanders who served in the military and died in wars and peacekeeping operations. On Anzac Day, a service is held at the memorial that attracts over 40,000 visitors. At this site, you can also visit the flame of remembrance and a pool of reflection, inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II in 2000.

State War Memorial Reviews
This war memorial is very well kept and maintained. The statues here are wonderful. I particularly liked the statue of a war widow with her two children., It brought tears to my eyes. more »
We have been to many war memorials in our travel, this place is one of the best. The eternal flame with the background of Perth is a place for solemn remembrance. more »
Nice park to go and relax with your family and loved ones. Can be considered a picnic spot, a part venue or just a park to stroll around in. Park provides some of the most amazing views of city and swan river. Very well maintained and clean.
A great setting for a walk. Attended a corporate function at Fraser's and ended up taking it outside towards the end of the afternoon. Took a walk to the Memorial and it was beautiful, the eternal flame is a sight to see and the overall set up was very relaxing and impact.
