    ANZAC is the name given to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula on 25 April 1915. The Parade is the National Capital's major ceremonial avenue set along the magnificent land axis.

    The ANZAC Parade memorials are lit at night, making access possible 24 hours per day. At the northern end of ANZAC Parade is Canberra's most popular tourist attraction, the Australian War Memorial.

    National War Memorial

    National War Memorial
    An enormous part of our Australian Heritage is embodied in our National War Memorial. As a very young country in comparison to the rest of the world, our history does not contain many dramatic civil wars... It is worthwhile going to see this monument to the fallen, to see the impact that it had on our country and it's people. It is important that we continue to understand our history, and pass on to younger generations the knowledge of the sacrifices that were made to keep our country and it's people safe.

    Regarded as one of the worlds most spectacular memorials. A very moving place. Using film, sound, light and modern technology, the Memorial offers you a better understanding of war. Be warned you can spend hours or even days at this site. In the Memorial Building, you'll find galleries of exhibits depicting the Australian experience of war, along with works by some of Australia's finest painters.

    Australian War Memorial
    This is a museum of Australia's war history. Opened in 1941 the Memorial holds fine collections of pictures, documents, relics and exhibitions, and an excellent collection of old aircrafts. The main attraction is The Hall of Memory. The Unknown Australian Soldier was brought here from a WWI battlefield in 1993. Surrounding the Memorial is a wall with the names of Australian soldiers who have died.

    The Canberra war memorial is the best thing in this city.
    I found it great and we went back 2 days in a row.
    I would say though it would only really be special if you happen to be aussie or kiwi and even more special if you had family who fought in the first or second world wars.

    If there is a reason to go to Canberra, this is it. One of the most extensive collections of war artifacts assembled in one place in the world.
