The Centenary Project
The Centenary Project finally realised architect Charles Bruce Dellit’s original vision for two water features through the completion of his concept for a water cascade to the south. Distinguished architectural firm Johnson Pilton Walker designed the Centenary Extension in collaboration with the NSW Government Architect’s Office. New spaces for the community deliver enhanced education and interpretation spaces that enable the Anzac legacy, Australia’s military history and the service and sacrifice of our defence personnel and their families to be interpreted for generations to come.
