Anzac Parade

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

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The red gravel central strip of this visually powerful landmark was originally made from crushed Canberra house bricks, chosen, in part, to echo the crunch made by military boots during a parade.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.
