  • Outstanding memorial. Well thought out, laid out and maintained. This is a real touching memorial that helps the audience relive that fateful day. Much consideration was given to the attention to detail, authenticity and emotions of those who were there that day. Tares at your heart strings to see and hear the stories of the survivors and those who perished. May they all rest in peace.
  • Such a beautiful place for such a disaster. This memorial is a worthy tribute to the sacrifices that were made on that fateful day. Reading the words painted on the brick building next to the memorial is a reminder of how passionate our civil servants are towards protecting us. Definitely a must see if your in the area.
