Anzac War Memorial Hyde Park

The main war memorial in Sydney and one of the city's finest Art Deco buildings. It embodies the collective grief of the people of NSW at the loss of Australian servicemen and women since World War I. It is associated with the landing of Australian troops at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915, since fundraising for the memorial was established on the first anniversary of the landing.

Built in Hyde Park in the 1930s, the Anzac War Memorial commemorates the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli in World War I. Though funds were gathered from 1916, construction was delayed by the building of the underground city railway through the park.
