The red gravel central strip of this visually powerful landmark was originally made from crushed Canberra house bricks, chosen, in part, to echo the crunch made by military boots during a parade.
ANZAC parade's dark eucalypt 'walls' are created by Victorian Blue Gum. The planter boxes are sewn with native New Zealand Hebe Otari Delight to symbolise the ANZAC connection.

Love the glass monument for the nurse that helped defend our country. Great piece of glass sculpture . Well worth stopping and walking around.
Park the car, stretch those legs and walk the avenue down from the Australian War Memorial. Remember there are two sides to the avenue, each is dotted with memorials that recognise the involvement...
Memorable and beautifully designed. From the war memorial to Lake Burleigh Griffin this is a must see and do and if the weather permits it will take half a day as you have to first go down one side...
