    Some may not know but most of the British allied troops defending Singapore against the Japanese during WWII are Australians under British command. Those who survive became Prisoners of War in Changi.

    Wonderful place to visit. Feel humble & grateful to those involved in war & peacekeeping. Displays are world class and the kids really enjoyed finding out about what great -granddad did in the war.

    This place is beautiful! Can't help feeling sad when we went. The list of names engraved on the walls, the people who lost their lives to keep peace. I hope they rest in peace.

    A must see for all Australians. Never a glorification of war but a commemoration of the sacrifices made by Australian men and women.

    There's a tip about skippong the tour and wandering yourself. While I agree, if you manage both it's even better. Two different experiences, with their own benefits.

    Parking is free if you drive.The last tour ends at 3 pm but check website for change of times. The one not to miss is the "last post ceremony" time is 1655hrs. You get to learn a bit the Anzac spirit.

    Allow lots of time! 2 hours... not enough. Stay for the 5pm ceremony, it's very moving and you will hear a story about one of our amazing service men or women, volunteers from defence read them out.
