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.
Vist the War memorial there are names of all the men lost in all wars in the memorial and the Scotish bag pipes are played everday at 5pm in rememberance.
The Australian War Memorial commemorates the sacrifice of Australian men and women who have served in war.
A wide display of past wars featuring WWI, WWII, the Vietnam War, Gulf War, etc and recently the War in Iraq.

Australia War Memorial. Very impressive. At the time of our visit there was a ceremony for the victims in New Guinea.
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.
