The Anzac Memorial is a heritage-listed war memorial, museum and monument located in Hyde Park South near Liverpool Street in the CBD of Sydney, Australia. It is also known as Anzac War Memorial, War Memorial Hyde Park and Hyde Park Memorial.

The Art Deco monument was designed by C. Bruce Dellit, with the exterior adorned with monumental figural reliefs and sculptures by Rayner Hoff, and built from 1932 to 1934 by Kell & Rigby. This state-owned property was added to the New South Wales State Heritage Register on 23 April 2010.
The memorial is the focus of commemoration ceremonies on Anzac Day, Remembrance Day and other important occasions. It was built as a memorial to the Australian Imperial Force of World War I. Fund raising for a memorial began on 25 April 1916, the first anniversary of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) landing at Anzac Cove for the Battle of Gallipoli. It was opened on 24 November 1934 by Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester. In 2018, refurbishments and a major expansion were completed. The memorial was officially reopened by Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex.

  • Hard not to get emotional when visiting this magnificent tribute to those that have gone to war on our behalves. The people are helpful, and the displays are wonderful. You’ll spend time walking silently between exhibits, reading about the history of people, places and events. And if you take it all in as a contributing foundation of your life as it is now you’ll be appropriately humbled. Job well done.
  • Excellent since they built the museum beneath it. Well laid out giving a record of Australian military and medical services. Plan to be there at 11.00, they have a daily "Last Post" remembrance service. Staff are friendly and happy to explain things. All that and it's free.
