Overview

Take an ANZAC Parade Free Guided Walk and discover the symbolism and stories behind the memorials that line Anzac Parade. Your experienced volunteer guide will tailor your to your group.

Walks explore some of the 11 memorials along the ANZAC Parade. Anzac Parade was officially opened on 25 April 1965 to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the Anzac landing in Gallipoli. ANZAC is the name given to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula on 25 April 1915.

The national capital's major ceremonial avenue is set along the Land Axis which forms a key feature of the original 1912 plan for Canberra by Walter Burley Griffin.

Guided walks are offered more during Daylight Savings or as part of special events such as the Canberra and District Heritage Festival.

Groups of over 15 people can book at anytime by email.

Bookings are essential but free of charge.
