The National Anzac Centre, Albany
In late 1914, over 41,000 Australians and New Zealanders sailed from King George Sound, Albany, bound for the First World War.
The National Anzac Centre, opened in November 2014, is dedicated to telling their story, solely to honour the Anzacs of the First World War. Set within Albany Heritage Park, Western Australia, the Centre offers visitors a deeply personal connection with the Anzac legend revealed through interactive multimedia displays, unique artefacts, rare images and film, and audio commentary.
This marvellous place, a 400 km drive SSE of Perth, is well worth a visit. A full description of what is on display can be found at www.nationalanzaccentre.com; it is an an integral part of the wealth of high quality material here.
There is too much material to absorb in one visit, but the stories of many individual Anzacs can all be browsed by clicking on individual pictures here.
