In late 1914, 40,000 Australians and
New Zealanders left Albany,
bound for the Great War.
This is their story.


The National Anzac Centre is Australia’s foremost museum honouring the Anzac legend. With content developed by the Western Australian Museum and Australian War Memorial, it uses multi-media and interactive technologies to offer visitors a unique insight into the Anzac experience.

The National Anzac Centre will open on 1 November 2014 to coincide with the centenary of the departure of Australian and New Zealand troops from Albany, Western Australia, to enter the First World War.

The Centre will allow a deeply personal connection with the past, providing a means for people of all ages to learn about, and reflect upon, the service and sacrifice of Australia’s men and women.

Bookings will be required for entry to the National Anzac Centre during the Albany Convoy Commemorative Event from 30 October until 2 November 2014. General visitation will be available from 3 November.
