Because of the Anzac Memorial Centenary Project, the Anzac War Memorial is currently closed for construction work and restoration. Luckily I have seen it a few times already, otherwise, this visit would be a big disappointment. An imposing, massive grey-pink granite building, when you can...More

The ANZAC Memorial was completed in 1934 almost at the same time as in Melbourne. The monument was designed by Bruce Dellit. However, the memorial in Sydney is much more modest than the memorial in Melbourne. Fundraising for the monument began in 1916 on the...More

Finished in 1934 to honour the dead of the 1st world war, not used for all Australia's subsequent wars including the 2nd World War and the Vietnam war. At the end of Hyde Park.

It is a significant memorial but it was under repair and falls well short of its counterpart in Melbourne even if it was open to the public.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
