Anzac Memorial reviews
We attended a free guided tour of the memorial, which was fantastic and very informative. The tour guide knew his stuff and the galleries are laid out extremely well and easy to navigate. more »
Visited here again last summer and found quiet moments to remember and revere the Australian war dead. The statuary of the Unknown Soldiers of the Western Front crucified in bayonets and barbed wire..... more »
Peaceful, quite and reflective on an overcast afternoon in Sydney. The Anzac Memorial is heritage listed and is situated in Hyde Park. It is most impressive and can be seen from quite some distance away. It was built as a memorial to the Australian Imperial Force of World War 1. Fund raising began in in 1916 and is was completed in 1934. It is good to remember those who bravely gave their lives for their country, let them never be forgotten.
