In honour of Remembrance Day you can pay your respects to the service of Australian soldiers by stopping at the Australian War Memorial and ANZAC Parade in Canberra, ACT.

ANZAC Parade

ANZAC Parade is dedicated to the Australian and New Zealand service people who have fought and died in war. Their memorials line the length of the Parade. The red gravel strip, made of crushed Canberra house bricks, is meant to echo the crunch made by military boots during a parade.

Australian War Memorial

The Australian War Memorial is the premier archive and centre for research into the history of Australian involvement in war. All servicemen and women who sacrificed during war efforts are commemorated here. You can pay your respects and discover what it means to be Australian by touring the museum, stopping at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, dropping a coin in to the pond holding the Eternal Flame, or remembering the people lost at the Roll of Honour.
