The public again has an another opportunity to support NSW’s principal memorial and honour the Anzac Legacy.  

The Anzac Memorial Trustees’ online Constellation of Honour and Memory campaign is raising funds for future exhibitions and education programs. 

The Trust wants to ensure the Memorial is able to continue to play its vital role in telling the stories and sharing the history of NSW's involvement in military operations long into the future.  

Stars in a 360º digital render of the Memorial's Hall of Memory are being sold for $100. Purchasers are able to tag their star and leave a message in memory of a veteran . These personal tributes are displayed on the Constellation of Honour and Memory.
