A visit to Sydney is not complete without a visit to the ANZAC Memorial

Visitors and even residents of Sydney and other parts of Australia make an effort to visit the war memorial in honour of the Australian soldiers who fought in World War I.

I was fortunate to have visited the war memorial this week during my short stay in Sydney.

Here is a small description of the ANZAC Memorial in Sydney.

The ANZAC Memorial, completed in 1934, is the main commemorative military monument of Sydney, Australia. It is listed on the New South Wales State Heritage Register, the monument was designed by C. Bruce Dellit, with the exterior adorned with monumental figural reliefs and sculptures by Rayner Hoff.

The memorial is located at the southern extremity of Hyde Park on the eastern edge of the Sydney central business district, and it is the focus of commemoration ceremonies on Anzac Day, Remembrance Day and other important occasions. It was built as a memorial to the Australian Imperial Force of World War I. Fundraising for a memorial began on April 25, 1916, the first anniversary of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (Anzac) landing at Anzac Cove for the Battle of Gallipoli. It was opened onNovember 24, 1934 by His Royal Highness Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester.
