There something about a war memorial that brings out feelings of patriotism and empathy in everyone. The Australian war memorial does just that and so much more; it talks about how war has shaped Australia’s identity and speaks about the valiant sacrifices made for the honour of the country. The museum is touching and memorable, with plenty of audio-visiuals packed in for special effect. The tomb of the unknown soldier has a certain melancholy attached to it that moves the visitor.

We Will Remember Them An incredibly moving place that is shown to the public with great respect and honour. It certainly can become quite emotional, especially during the Last Post and viewing the Roll of Honour and Tomb of the Unknown Solider. I am privileged and humbled to be able to place a poppy next to a family member's name. The staff do an amazing job here. Definitely a place to take children as well to teach them about history so it can be remembered and carried on throughout the generations.
An amazing site with an extremely well put together museum that does an excellent job on telling the ANZAC story. And providing a place where everyone is welcome to reflect and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. The closing ceremony at the end of each day is a must do for all visitors, Every service is a unique experience, telling the story of a different soldier each day.
It's been a long time since I've been there, but it was well worth the revisit. I loved what they have done in the Aircraft hall with G for George and other exhibits as it helps you get a feel for what it was like. It was a pleasure to see that the UN peacekeepers and soldiers in more modern combat operations have been given the recognition that they justly deserve.
What a treasure of a museum! I am impressed that there’s a Lancaster in there. The shows are great in retelling the stories and bring an idea of what it was like and the reasons for going to the various wars since WWII. The dioramas give a better impression of the battle field. The tour leads have great stories to tell. You’d need at least a full day if not 2 do do it justice.
Very humbling and a wonderful memorial for all our fallen heros. Highly recommended for all ages. Our children need to know how their Gallantry gives us the freedom we have today. God bless them all.
