ANZAC Memorial
Location: Be’eri Forest
Description: The ANZAC Memorial commemorates the cavalry soldiers who fell in the battles of World War I in the Negev. The cornerstone of the memorial was laid in April 1967, on the 50th anniversary of the battles. The monument is shaped like the letter A, the first letter of ANZAC. An observation tower at the top of the monument overlooks the battlefields in the Gaza Strip. The monument was built from the donation of the Friends of KKL-JNF in Australia.
