Anzac War Memorial

The Anzac War Memorial is a landmark built to commemorate the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZACs) landing at Gallipoli in 1915.

The military monument was designed by Bruce Dellit, and its exterior was decorated with figural reliefs and sculptures to honour the gallant soldiers who lost their lives during this period.

ANZAC War Memorial, Hours & Address Location, Hyde Park Sydney

The memorial is located in Hyde Park towards the eastern side of Sydney’s CBD. For obvious reasons, this memorial is the focal point of all commemoration events held on Anzac Day, Remembrance Day and many other important events on Australia’s calendar. While fundraising for the memorial started in 1916, the memorial was not opened until 1934.

The memorial’s exterior is pink granite, while the interior is white marble and features a dome-shaped ceiling. The ceiling has 120,000 gold stars, each representing the military volunteers from New South Wales who served during the First World War.

To access the hall at the Anzac War Memorial, take the broad stairways on both sides of the building. To get to the lower section, use the ground-level doors on the eastern and western sides. The bronze sculpture depicting a naked soldier, the only one of its kind in Sydney and the country, is impossible to miss.

Visitors are encouraged to contemplate during their visit to the memorial. No food or drink is to be consumed while inside the memorial and phones should be switched off or turned to silent.

You can reach the ANZAC War Memorial by train, alighting at Museum. This is the closest train station, a short walk from the Memorial.
