Can you tell me more about the Anzac Memorial?
The Anzac Memorial is located in Hyde Park South and is the principal war memorial for NSW. It is supported by the Office for Veterans’ Affairs in the Department of Communities and Justice.
The Memorial is one of Australia’s finest and most distinctive Art Deco structures. It fuses the architecture of Bruce Dellit and the art of Rayner Hoff into a powerful symbol of courage, endurance and sacrifice, rendering acutely legible the very purpose of the building. The building is sited in a traditional gathering place for the Eora People and in Sydney’s oldest urban park.
The Anzac Memorial was dedicated in 1934 to commemorate the courage, endurance and sacrifice of New South Wales service men and women who served in The Great War 1914-1918
In 1984 the Memorial was rededicated to honour all Australians who have served in wars and peacekeeping missions.
In 2014, the NSW Government announced funding support for The Centenary Project. The 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. New spaces for the community to 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.
The Memorial is open every day 9am and 5pm, except Christmas Day and Good Friday
