Beautiful day here in Adelaide, so I decided to get the Harley out and go for a ride... past the Tea Tree Gully War Memorial, which I have missed seeing all these years and so I turned around to have a look... very well done. Took some pics as well.
The local council call it the Tea Tree Gully Memorial Garden. Anzac Day Dawn Service is held there each year.
For anyone interested it is at North East Road & Memorial Drive, Tea Tree Gully.
