About this event

What you will see

The Memorial’s First World War galleries cover major theatres of operations during the First World War – Gallipoli, the Western Front, Sinai and Palestine, and the war at sea – as well as the home front and enduring legacy of war.

The Second World War galleries show how Australians fought in campaigns against Germany and Italy in Europe, the Mediterranean and North Africa; and against Japan in south-east Asia.

The Conflicts 1945 to Today galleries focus on Australian involvement in conflicts after the Second World War, including the Korean War; the Malayan Emergency and Indonesian Confrontation; the Vietnam War; ongoing conflict in the Middle East; and humanitarian and peacekeeping operations since 1947.

The Commemorative Area is located at the heart of the Memorial. It features the Tomb of the Unknown Australian Soldier, the Roll of Honour, the Pool of Reflection and the Eternal Flame.
