The Australian Government and the Australian War Memorial, supported by the Commonwealth Bank and Telstra are proud to be bringing the Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience to communities across Australia.

The Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience follows a chronological timeline spanning from pre-war Australia to the present day, using a mix of arresting visuals, artefacts, audio and film to engage visitors.

A key feature of the Experience will be the curated ‘local stories’ zone that will be part of the exhibition. These zones will be created in close collaboration with local communities and will contribute to the legacy for each region.

The Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience is the flagship community event of the Australian Government’s Anzac Centenary national programme.

When

The Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience will begin its national tour in September 2015 in Albury-Wodonga.

Where

The exhibition will travel to major cities and regional hubs across Australia, giving a large proportion of the population a chance to engage in the story, contribute to the journey and take something away from the Experience.

The host cities and towns are Wodonga, Launceston, Hobart, Ballarat, Bendigo, Wollongong, Melbourne, Adelaide, Tamworth, Toowoomba, Brisbane, Mackay, Cairns, Townsville, Darwin, Port Augusta, Perth, Bunbury, Kalgoorlie, Geelong, Orange, Newcastle and Sydney.

Entry

Entry to the Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience is free. To ensure visitors can enjoy the Experience, a pre-booked ticketing system will be used.

Each visit to the Experience is expected to last around 2 hours, including admission, briefing and viewing the galleries.

School and group bookings are encouraged and can be easily arranged by visiting www.spiritofanzac.gov.au

Community Involvement

While the Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience explores Australia’s involvement in the First World War and a Century of Service, local engagement activities will provide an opportunity for regional centres to recognise and take pride in their region and town’s contribution to Australia’s national wartime story.
