Monument Hill Redevelopment

Extensive landscaping works are underway as part of a long-term plan to upgrade and beautify Monument Hill.

General information

Works commenced on the Monument Hill Redevelopment project in early October 2019.

There is no direct vehicle or pedestrian access to the monument during the construction period. Limited pedestrian access remains around the construction site to the viewing points, bushland walking trails and the picnics facilities.  Car parking will be available at the Memorial Bowl. The toilets facilities will remain open however, they will be closed periodically during certain elements of the construction.

Due to the electrical upgrade works the light on top of the Monument will not be lit for the duration of the construction. The flags have also been removed due to the lights illuminating the flags not operating. The flags will be re-instated at the conclusion of the redevelopment works and lighting restored.

About this project

Monument Hill, at the western end of Dean Street, is one Albury’s most-visited destinations.

The World War One memorial sits atop of the hill which provides stunning views of the region.

A number of site issues have been identified by the community and the RSL. To address those issues, a master plan was developed and endorsed by council in February 2017, providing us with a a long term strategy for improvements at the site.

We're committing $1,050,000 towards the project with an additional $300,000 secured through the NSW government's Stronger Country Communities Fund.

Project scope

The project will involve landscaping and implementation of key priorities including:

  • Improved roadways
  • Upgrade of CCTV cameras
  • Upgrade of lighting and power for events (particularly ANZAC Day)
  • Upgrade of park fixtures and furniture (picnic tables & drinking fountain)
  • Landscaping around the memorial
  • Retaining wall replacement
