Full description
Set within the Princess Royal Fortress, the National Anzac Centre provides a deeply personal connection between yourself and those who served during WW1. Learn about the key phases and events of the First World War are told through the stories of the Anzac's themselves. Assume the identity of one of 32 characters, and follow their personal experience of the Great War from recruitment, training and embarkation, shipboard life on the convoys, the conflicts at Gallipoli, the Middle East and the Western Front, and post-war life for those who returned. Engage with these personal stories through interactive, multimedia displays, poignant artifacts, rare images and film, and audio commentary. On 1 November 1914, the first convoy of Australian and New Zealand troops departed for the First World War from King George Sound, Albany. For many, Albany was their last sight of Australian soil. Today Albany is known as the birthplace of the Anzac story and the home of the National Anzac Centre. As the story of conflicts within the National Anzac Centre draws to a close, the names of the 41,265 servicemen and women who left Albany in the first and second convoys are revealed: scrolling beneath a Pool of Reflections. The experience concludes with the discovery of each character’s fate and a Tribute Wall where visitors may document their own feelings and messages to the Anzacs.

    Excellent exhibition from the assignment of an individual to track through the war, the reflection room with the tribute to each individual who was sent to the war, the silent movie which articulated many of the atrocities of the war (the Man in the Bath was particularly poignant), to the audio pieces which accompanied the displays. A moving exhibition indeed.
