Australian War Memorial

Australia’s military history is remembered and honoured at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. The memorial is a shrine to the many Australians who served during war time and for the many who lost their lives for their country.  

You’ll be deeply moved as you wander through the shrine and come to realise the enduring impact that war has had on our society. The roll of honour lists the names of fallen soldiers and leads you passed the pool of reflection and the eternal flame to the poignant Hall of Memory and the tomb of the unknown Australian soldier.

The memorial is also a museum of fascinating war-time artefacts and an archive of our military history. You can see restored military aircraft and vehicles on display, intricate battle scene dioramas and personal letters and diaries from soldiers at the front. This is a moving experience not to be missed.
