On 3 December 2014, Senator the Hon. Michael Ronaldson, Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Centenary of ANZAC, officially launched the Anzac Portal website at Parliament House.
The Portal contains Department of Veterans’ Affairs education material that supports student learning about Australia’s involvement in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.
It provides digital publications and information on different aspects of Australia’s experience of war from the Boer War to the present day, and combines this with the personal stories of veterans to promote a greater understanding of the sacrifices of Australia’s servicemen and women.
The Portal links to a variety of government, cultural institution and veteran websites, and provides material to support commemorative services.
Senator Ronaldson described the Anzac Portal as a great resource for Australians to learn more about our wartime history during the Anzac Centenary period.
