National Anzac Centre

Galleries, Museums and Collections

In 1914, more than 40,000 Australians and New Zealanders left Albany, bound for the Great War. This is their story.

The National Anzac Centre is Australia’s foremost museum honouring the Anzac legend. Set within Albany Heritage Park, the Centre offers visitors a deeply personal connection with the Anzac experience.

Upon entering the National Anzac Centre, visitors assume the identity of one of 32 Anzac characters and walk with them as they experience the First World War: from recruitment; through training and embarkation; engagement in conflicts in the Indian Ocean prior to arrival in Egypt; and on to Gallipoli, the Palestine and Sinai; and across the Western front.

These personal stories unfold through interactive, multimedia displays and audio commentary, as visitors witness the First World War through the eyes and stories of their Anzac.

The National Anzac Centre experience concludes with the discovery of each Anzac’s fate and the opportunity for visitors to document their own feelings through an interactive wall which displays their message within the National Anzac Centre.

The Centre opened on 1 November 2014, to mark the centenary of the Australian and New Zealand troop convoys’ departure from Albany’s King George Sound to enter the First World War.
