Australian War Memorial

Canberra hotels

The memorial provides a museum of Australia’s war history. It commemorates sacrifices made by the soldiers who died while serving the country. The main building and grounds provide a majestic and appealing focus for a place of recognition and tribute. The Hall of Memory is the central point, where the tomb of the unknown World War 1 soldier is located. Nearby is the Roll of Honour where names of over 100,000 war-dead are inscribed on the walls surrounding the Reflection Pool.

The museum is home to collections of war relics, photos and films and exhibitions of aircraft from the past, as well as many battle scenes in miniature. Some world renowned collections are on display in the galleries and give visitors a feel for the lives, times and people involved in Australia’s military campaigns and how war affects families and communities.

There are also many stories of jokes, mate-ship and adventure shown in the exhibits which lighten the serious atmosphere and provide a light touch of humour.

The Memorial leaves the visitor with a feeling of respect and appreciation for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

There is no cost to visit the Memorial and it is open every day from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm. The Memorial is located on Anzac Parade, Campbell ACT.
