Australian War Memorial Canberra Entrance

The path to the Australian War Memorial Canberra. Over the next seven days I will be taking you around the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. I visit there on my afternoon walk around Canberra. This is one of my favourite places, especially after all the crowds have gone. "The Australian War Memorial is unique among the world’s war memorials, because it is both a collection and a building and the building is both a museum and a shrine. The Memorial was founded to commemorate the 60,000 Australians who died in the 1914-1918 war and to tell the story of Australians in war. Its foundation stone was laid on ANZAC Day 1919, but work on the building was delayed by the Depression and the Second World War and it was not opened until Armistice Day 1941."


  1. I agree the War Memorial is one of the great places to visit in Canberra. It is so full of information that it is possible to visit again and again and find new things to see. In addition the aesthetics of the place are wonderful. A very special tribute. I look forward to the next week of images.

  2. Such a beautiful place to visit, especially as you say when the crowds are gone.
