Anzac Peace Park
On the edge of Princess Royal Harbour at the bottom of York Street in the CBD is the Anzac Peace Park. Among the men and women who gathered in Albany before departing to serve in WW1 were the troops who landed at Gallipoli, including the Light Horsemen who fought on the battlefields of the Middle East — and who entered Jerusalem and captured Damascus. Soldiers also fought in France and Belgium as part of the eight-month campaign. The Anzac Peace park was officially opened in 2010 and pays tribute to the Australians who served in WW1, and all those who have served the nation in conflicts and peacekeeping missions since.
The Park features the Pier of Remembrance, the Interpretive Walk and the Lone Pine Grove as well as being the venue for Albany’s ANZAC Day Service and Parade each year.
The Park is adjacent to Princess Royal Harbour and each departing ship is represented by an engraved panel on the Pier of Remembrance as well as the AE2 submarine plaque which sits at the end of the Pier, a gift to the Albany community from the AE2 Commemorative Foundation.
