Discover Anzac Parade: A walk in history and honour
Welcome to the self-guided audio tour of Anzac Parade, Canberra's main ceremonial avenue and home to many important military memorials.
As you walk along the red gravel path, flanked by Australian blue gums and New Zealand hebes, you will discover the stories of courage, sacrifice and camaraderie that have shaped our nation's history and identity. Learn about the origins of the word 'Anzac', which stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and how it became a symbol of the bond between the two countries. You will also see how each memorial reflects a different aspect of our military heritage, from the Boer War to peacekeeping. Each memorial has its own design, symbolism and significance, and each invites you to pause and reflect on the lives and deeds of those who served.
Along the way you will hear the stories behind each memorial. This tour is also a tribute to all Australians and New Zealanders who have fought and died for our freedom and democracy. We hope you enjoy this journey of discovery and remembrance.
