The Memorial is located on the central north-south axis of Sydney's Hyde Park South. The original building has two levels centred round the principal ceremonial space, rising from the circular Hall of Silence on the ground floor to the impressive Hall of Memory on the upper floor. On the ground floor and wrapping round the Hall of Silence (where Sacrifice stands) are the Assembly Hall, offices and spaces used for retail and displays.
The subterranean Centenary Extension provides exhibition and education facilities. At its centre is the Hall of Service which draws from the spatial qualities of the spaces within the original Memorial building.
Reception desks are located on the ground and lower floors where our staff and Memorial Guides are available to assist you.
Public amenities including two accessible toilets are located on the lower floor.

Seating is provided in the Hall of Service on the lower floor as well as the ground floor. A limited number of portable stools are also available from the information counters located on the lower and ground floors.
