This memorial museum tells the story of the Australian soldiers in East Timor during WW2, enjoy a coffee and toasted sandwich while you watch the video more »
It's a bit of a challenge to find it unless you go with someone who knows where it's at. Several panels on the walls with plenty of history. Some chairs and tables to relax, bring your own snacks and.... more »
Great view and a well maintained information centre on Aussie and Timorese troops fighting the Japanese in WWII. Used to be a cafe here but I think this might be closed - still well worth the drive up the hill to the lookout as you get to see the different climate zone and get a great view from the lookout point. The lookout is 30 seconds from the road and under cover so great if it’s raining.
Shut down, nice view .
