The Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience was launched on the 25th of March by Prime Minister, the Hon Tony Abbott MP.
From the Australian War Memorial:
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. It spans all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations in which Australia has been involved.
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 Experience is proudly being brought to communities across Australia by the Australian Government and the Australian War Memorial, and is supported by the Commonwealth Bank and Telstra.
This special travelling exhibition will visit 23 locations across Australia throughout the Centenary of Anzac period. These include Albury-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.
