Take a stroll down Anzac Parade from the Australian War Memorial down to the lake and you pass all these amazing Memorials which are on either side. Delightful way to spend an hour or two

One of the first monuments along the anzac walk- history buffs will love stopping at all of these to learn more, although this one in particular doesn't have much information associated with it.

Even if you have no link to the ANZACs remembered here, this particular memorial is an evocative sculpture showing the relationship between both the Australian and New Zealander, and also the soldier and his horse.

Again, like all of the monuments along ANZAC Parade, they are worth a short visit to contemplate the sacrifice made by so many in the wars and battles they commemorate. The service by those who participated is worth recognising, that so many suffered and died for the personal agendas of big business and immoral politicians is disgraceful. This one is... More

Visit as part of the ANZAC Parade walk. It's one of a number of memorials - and is quite a moving experience.

This sculpture really reflects upon the nature of the relationship between Australia and New Zealand and embodies a great deal of the ANZAC spirit. It is one of the memorials along ANZAC Parade that caught the imagination of the party of 11 year old school children.

As an old soldier I am moved by such memorials they show the suffering of those that gave us our way of life

This memorial was initially built after all the ANZACS in Egypt and Palestine donated a days pay in 1917 towards it’s construction. It portrays the mateship that goes hand in hand with ANZAC’s, and portrays mounted Diggers in action. The memorial specifically remembers the ANZAC’s who served in Egypt, Palestine and Syria. This is the 3rd memorial of its kind,... More
