The absolute highlight of our time in Canberra. The Memorial is also a shrine and museum. It is immaculately conceived and executed, and has a treasure of a collection.

With no expectations i was completely blown away with the detail, dialect and visuals throughout the memorial. So heart wrenching and interesting for all ages and backgrounds. Whether you spend 2 hours or 2 days the memorial does not dissapoint.

This is a must see experience, if you an Australian or a Pome you must go and see this if your in or near Canberra. Absolutely fantastic, brilliant and fantastically put together. If you have a modicum of pride just do it.

Easy to spend the whole day here because there is so much to see. Only issue is keeping small kids entertained while you look around but the discovery centre was great for their age group.
