  ANZAC PARADE
by balhannah
 
 

Located in front of the War Memorial, the ?Parade? has a centre made out of crushed Canberra house bricks, then the road, and on either sides, Memorials are located amongst the Gum Trees.

The name ANZAC, stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

The Anzac legend has its roots in Gallipoli and WW1, when the Australian and New Zealand soldiers landed at Gallipoli on 25th April, 1915.

The Parade was completed in 1965. The Memorials located along here, represent the Military conflicts that Australia has played a part in. It also reminds us of the bond we have with New Zealand.

The best way to see this Parade, is to walk. It is not a hard walk, even though it is 2.5kms long. Probably allow 1.5 hours at a slow pace.
After visiting the War Memorial, I did the walk. Our car was in the free War Memorial car park. You walk down oneside and back up the other, easy!

FREE GUIDED TOURS ARE AVAILABLE.

LOCATION is....Base of the Australian War memorial, Limestone Ave extending down to Constition Ave.

Address: Constitution Ave.
