A city memorial to those who fought in the First World War. The marble angel framed within the main granite arch represents the “spirit of duty”, and holds a sword in the shape of a cross signifying “battle and sacrifice”. The three bronze figures below...More

Located on North Terrace, this is where the Annual ANZAC Day Memorial Service is held. Located on a small plaza and now incorporates a new Memorial Walk down to the Torrens.

We were on an excursion and throughly enjoyed learning the history of this beautiful country. There was so much to see and because we were on an excursion we did not have a lot of time. Well worth your time.

A beautiful tribute to the fallen of WWI. Don’t miss looking inside. I have visited many memorials including Ypres and the Menin Gate and obviously this is match smaller but it’s a fine monument to the lost.

A moving memorial for those that fought for peace and made the ultimate sacrifice during "The Great War" and those that followed. Research before you travel will enhance your trip. A "must see" for military history buffs.

The War Memorial is a beautifully designed and constructed tribute to the personnel who contribute so much to our way of life in Australia. Our military (and support) staff are well represented for their contribution in this well positioned edifice near the city centre.

The monument is close to the Parliament House in a busy intersection. Inside the monument are the names of the fallen heroes printed on the round walls - it is a long list. A good way to show respect.

The memorial is at the centre of a precinct which preserves a lot of the history pf this city. A new addition to the war heritage is located along much of the length of the adjacent street, and the high stone fence protecting Government House...More
