Anzac War Memorial

The Anzac War Memorial reflected in the "Pool of Reflection" in Hyde Park South. It was designed by C. Bruce Dellit in the Art Deco architectural style and completed in 1934. It was built as a memorial to the Australian Imperial Force of World War I and is the focus of commemoration ceremonies on Anzac Day and Remembrance Day.

  4. I LOVE this war memorial. And its peaceful surrounds where a person can walk and reflect.

    But very tall trees should have been planted behind the war memorial, to block out those ugly modern buildings behind.
