Accessibility

The Anzac Memorial aims to provide access to all visitors, including those with disabilities. An accessible walkway takes visitors from Sydney's Liverpool Street through the Cascade and into the Hall of Service. All levels of the building have equitable access via inclinators and an elevator. The Memorial team has developed strategies to provide the public greater access to the Memorial's collection and programs. The textured finishes inside the Hall of Service, the Hall of Silence and the Hall of Memory, particularly the engraved battle honours, the rocks set into the Memorial niches and art deco design elements within easy reach all provide material for a "touch tour" for people with vision impairment.

Getting to the Memorial

The Anzac Memorial is located within Sydney's Hyde Park South. Hyde Park South is bounded by Park Street to the north, College Street to the east, Liverpool Street to the south and Elizabeth Street to the west.

Using public transport

It and is only160 metres (approximately a 2 minute walk) from the Memorial and has a lift, a public address system for announcements, tactile surfaces and wheelchair accessible toilet. Bus services stop on Elizabeth Street and Liverpool Street.  The majority of local bus services in NSW are accessible.
