  Canberra War Memorial
by Kate-Me

I wasn't sure what to expect with this attraction - something a bit dull and boring and a grey concrete building with little style like some other buildings in Canberra.... but when I read in the tourist brochures that they had a sound and light show, AND entry was free, I decided to go along, and was very glad that I did.
The building was the most stylish one I've seen in Canberra yet. the attraction itself was both informative, interesting and exciting, yet dignified at all times, focussing on the consequences of war rather than the glory, and very thought provoking, especially the museum and interpretive part of the attraction.
