The Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience is a travelling exhibition that tells the story of Australia’s involvement in the First World War, and the ensuing Century of Service of Australia's armed forces in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations in which Australia has been involved. 

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

An important feature of the experience will be the curated ‘local stories’ zone.  These zones will be created with the local communities and will contribute a legacy for each region. The Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience is the flagship community event of the Australian Government’s Anzac Centenary national programme. Find out more about the Anzac Centenary national programme.

​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.
