The Anzac Memorial Collection is a cornerstone in its mission to maintain the memory of NSW citizens who served, both home and abroad, during conflict and peace keeping activities. The Anzac Memorial continues to actively collect original material representing NSW and its citizen in both past and present conflicts.   If you would like to donate material to the Anzac Memorial please contact us at manager@anzacmemorial.nsw.gov.au or 8262 2900. Unfortunately the Anzac Memorial may not be able to accept a donation if it duplicates material already in the collection or if it does not fit within the parameters of our policy and mission. Please contact the Memorial before sending any items.
