Australian War Memorial

The Memorial is more than a monument. Inside the sandstone building with its copper-sheathed dome, selections from vast national collections of relics, personal and public records, art and media are employed to relate the story of a young nation's experience in world wars, regional conflicts and international peacekeeping. The story begins at the time sailing ships first brought European settlers, convicts and military from England in 1789 - and extends to the present.

The Memorial complex includes commemorative areas, a sculpture garden, gallery exhibits, research facilities, and function spaces. Discover what there is to see and do on your visit.
