The most important war memorial in Australia
The Australian War Memorial in Canberra is a very important building, of course, especially for Australians. It is intended as a memory of all those who fell during the First and Second World Wars. It is located at the foot of Mount Ainslie, relatively close to the center
At the memorial
The monument is really monumental and is built in a nice place with plenty of space to make it stand out. A little further behind it is the hill Mount Ainslie, where you can also go if you want to see, for example, kangaroos
The interior of the monument
The monument looks like a huge mausoleum and there is a really gloomy atmosphere. Man, on the other hand, does not understand why, as humanity, we constantly kill each other
Roll of Honor with the names of the dead
Roll of Honor is a long corridor covered by bronze plaques with 102,600 names of Australian soldiers who fell in the war
Pool of Reflection
Pool of Reflection is a place with eternal fire in the middle of the lake. It is a place for remembrance and mourning of dead soldiers
View from the monument
