Splendour Rock

A Bushwalkers War Memorial

Australia’s most remote war memorial, Splendour Rock, is one of the most spectacular locations in NSW. Named by the authors ‘Gods Balcony’, it is a place of great presence. Since 1948, it has become one of the most special places for bushwalker reverence. Each ANZAC Day, it is the scene of a dawn service like no other. This intensely human book chronicles the story of Splendour Rock and associated memorials.

Soft cover with flaps, 378 pages.
