The Anzac Memorial Centenary Project's first 12 months of construction

4 September 2017

The Anzac Memorial Centenary Project has reached its one year milestone – and the half way mark in realising the original 1930s vision for the Memorial. The basement slab for the new spaces is in place and pre-cast concrete beams will be installed over the next month for the main structure of the new building. The project is on track for completion as the Centenary of Anzac commemorations conclude in 2018.
