Categories: General Events
The Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience is Australia’s flagship community event of the Anzac Centenary. The free of charge, groundbreaking exhibition is touring to 23 locations around Australia from September 2015 to April 2017.
The Experience brings to life an infant Australia still finding its feet on the eve of war. It follows in the footsteps of our soldiers, sailors, airmen and nurses throughout the campaign, including a commemoration of Australia’s century of service.
Driven by more than 200 artefacts from the Australian War Memorial, the Experience also integrates interactive environments and special effects to tell Australia’s story in new and engaging ways.
Presented by the Australian Government and the Australian War Memorial, and proudly supported by the Commonwealth Bank and Telstra.
