The monument on Mount Scott is a wonderful tribute to the 645 Australian men and women who lost their lives on the HMAS Sydney when it sank after a battle with the German merchant vessel the Kormoran, There is a bronze statue of a lady and she is said to be looking out to sea to where the ship went down, she is looking after the lost souls of the crew, others say she is waiting for them to return. The seagulls on the roof of the dome are great, they transported the 645 souls to their resting place. There is also a pool of remembrance 'Closing the Circle' 644 Seagulls are lining the base of the pool, the 645th, standing 2 meters tall above the pool, its wing indicating the spot where the wreck lies. The wall of rememberence is made black marble stone with the crew's names and their jobs engraved into it. It is a moving and fitting tribute. Definitely recommend a visit.
