Please note, while restrictions put in place to respond to COVID-19 are easing, there may be some changes to business-as-usual to keep workers and visitors safe. Please contact the business for the most up to date information, including opening times and social distancing measures.

Anzac Parade is the National Capital's major commemorative way. Walk the length of the parade past memorials dedicated to Australian and New Zealand service people who've fought and died in war.

The red gravel central strip of this visually powerful landmark was originally made from crushed Canberra house bricks, chosen, in part, to echo the crunch made by military boots during a parade.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. Central planter boxes are sewn with native New Zealand Hebe 'Otari Delight' to symbolise the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps connection.

“Nice walk to/from the war memorial”

Reviewed on 06/04/2021

Nice walk to/from the war memorial, taking in some of the other memorial statues. Might be a bit tough in a wheelchair as the path stops and starts.

“Memorial”

We took advice from a previous poster and visited here prior to visiting the war memorial. I agree, a great way to set up your visit to both these sites.

“Make this a must prior to visiting the War Memorial”

Spend 1 hour walking up Anzac Parade to the War Memorial by crisscrossing the road visiting the memorials, some are quite powerful others are thought provocating, but well worth the time and energy...
