Australian War Memorial

The Australian War Memorial is a world-class museum where Australians pay tribute to Australia's military forces — those who lived and served as well as the ones serving today. This renowned venue tells stories about those who have served or continue to serve Australia in armed conflicts by mounting exhibitions showcasing personal records and achievements by military servicemen and women as well as large technology objects and artworks that depict the realities of military service. The memorial shows the importance of the human element in conflicts and campaigns and encourages Aussies to be aware of Australia's involvement in conflict situations so they can understand future decisions about wars and peace-keeping opportunities.

With a well-designed theatrette and spaces for seated and cocktail events, this historic venue is the perfect setting for an unforgettable event. Aside from the impeccable setting, there are lots of things event guests and visitors can do at the Australian War Memorial Canberra.

There are numerous galleries to explore, including those of the First World War and the Second World War. The Roll of Honour contains over 100,000 names of servicemen and women who were killed in conflict or during peace-keeping operations. There are names on the plaques that go back as far as the Second Boer War, the British Sudanese Expedition and the Boxer Rebellion. The sculpture garden features the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. There's also a Hall of Memory and a memorial pool surrounding an eternal flame.

An on-site cafe serves delicious food and coffee and is the perfect spot for a short break. Australian War Memorial events include the daily Last Post Ceremony and ANZAC Day. The daily Last Post Ceremony tells the story of one of the names in the Roll of Honour whilst ANZAC Day is when all Aussies commemorate our fallen servicemen and women.

Amenities at the Australian War Memorial Canberra include parking, assisted access, a carers room and custom lighting for events.
