The Anzac Memorial
The Anzac Memorial, in Sydney's Hyde Park, is New South Wale's principal memorial to all Australians who have served in the Defence Force. The Memorial building in both its original and its extended form is a work of art and remarkable piece of architecture. It is a physical expression of the spirit and legend of the Anzacs and a place of comfort for those who have lost loved ones.
Exhibition and interpretation spaces allow the Anzac Memorial to illustrate the evolution of Australian military service while focusing on NSW stories.
The detailed storytelling within the Centenary Exhibition Gallery complements the quiet spaces and symbols of the original Memorial building.
The Anzac Memorial is open from 9 am to 5 pm every day, except Good Friday and Christmas Day.
