What you can expect

At the National ANZAC Centre interactive displays will take you on an intimate journey of a participant of the war. Under the shade of trees planted to remember fallen soldiers, the Avenue of Honour leads to the Memorial of the Desert Mounted Corps. The dawn service is Padre White’s storey. Take in the view that the departing ANZAC Troops had before they sailed onwards to war; for some of them, the last vision of homeland.

Curving around Mt Adelaide, Breaksea Island comes into view and stories of the construction of the lighthouse and its connection to the ANZAC narrative are revealed. At Middleton Beach we pause a moment to absorb the vista of the ocean and perhaps, if lucky, a glimpse of sheltering whales and calves. Journeying into the city centre, along the way we drive past the oldest farm in Western Australia and learn of the contribution it made to the social life and nourishment of the early community; a property with a chequered history. Visit one of the earliest homes in Australia at Patrick Taylor Cottage.

Landmarks abound with the stamp of British settlement established in the early 1800’s. Hear about the treacherous voyage in the cramped quarters of The Brig Amity and its arrival, in Albany, on Christmas Day.
