Hours and admission

The Memorial is normally open every day, except Good Friday and Christmas Day, from 9.00am to 5.00pm. However as work progresses on the  Anzac Memorial Centenary Project  we have a rare opportunity to perform some important heritage conservation in the Memorial’s Hall of Memory. In the interest of visitor comfort and safety the Memorial will be closed mid-November until March 2018. Please  follow our Facebook page and revisit our website for updates.

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience. Our staff will have some limited presence on the Memorial’s northern forecourt during the closure. They will be happy to attend to visitor’s queries when on site.

The initial attack on Timor cost 84 Australian lives
