The National World War I and World War II Memorials will be located on the Rond Terraces, overlooking Lake Burley Griffin at the foot of Anzac Parade. The site is on the primary ceremonial and symbolic axis of Canberra, known as the Land Axis, originally conceived by Walter Burley Griffin, the city’s famous designer. This is a site of national significance and the Memorials are intended to be world class.
The Memorials will reflect the spirit of the Australian nation. They will honour the sacrifice of more than 101,000 Australians who died, leaving an enduring legacy for those who served and those who supported on the home front.
The Competition is open to design professionals with tertiary qualifications in their field(s) and to members of the public with an interest in the memorials’ commemorative purpose, who team with accredited design professionals. (to find out more..)
