Plan Your Visit

The Anzac Memorial is dedicated to the remembrance of Australians who have served in the Defence Force.

As Australia marks the 100th anniversary of the First World War, the State Government is enhancing the Memorial. The Anzac Memorial Centenary Project will be completed in November 2018 and finally realise Bruce Dellit's original vision. Stunning new features will also be introduced and  enhance the Memorial's reputation as a NSW landmark.

As work progresses on the 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 23 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.

School Bookings

An important part of the Memorial's mission is to foster relevant learning experiences for students that develop an understanding of Australian service and sacrifice in war and peacekeeping. The Anzac Memorial is an ideal educational setting for students to undertake programs that encourage remembrance of our veterans, their service to Australia and their legacy - the Anzac spirit.
