  • I think what I like most about this memorial is its subtlety, its reverence and the peaceful and reflective nature of it. You could easily spend a day at Port Arthur and miss it, I assume by design, but it is worth a look, to read the names of those lost and to see inside the shell of the cafe where it all happened. You leave with a deeper sadness than you arrive, that is for certain.
