The State War Memorial is dedicated to ANZAC, the united army corps of Australia and New Zealand that fought in World War I. Hardly any other country has suffered such a high death toll by percentage of the population as Australia. I'd like to encourage visitors to think about the madness, horror and tragedy of war instead of the so-called glory.

The Flame of Remembrance invites to silent contemplation. This spot is preferred by noisy school groups for their group photo...
