5000 Poppies – a tribute

A sea of handcrafted red poppies, an unforgettable tribute to the Australian men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in the First World War, will carpet the Parliament House Forecourt to mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, 11 November, 1918.

Two vast displays of poppies, lovingly created by 5000 Poppies project volunteers – many of whom are descendants of original Anzacs – will be installed in the Marble Foyer and on the Forecourt, with a direct line of sight to the Australian War Memorial.

The displays connect with the 62,000 poppies installed on the Memorial’s grounds representing every Australian life lost in the First World War.

Australians young and old are invited to walk through this evocative tribute designed to ensure that the men and women who gave their all will never be forgotten.

We will remember them.
