Albany: National Anzac Centre Entry Ticket

2. Albany: National Anzac Centre Entry Ticket

Set within the Princess Royal Fortress, the National Anzac Centre provides a deeply personal connection between yourself and those who served during WW1. Learn about the key phases and events of the First World War are told through the stories of the Anzac's themselves. Assume the identity of one of 32 characters, and follow their personal experience of the Great War from recruitment, training and embarkation, shipboard life on the convoys, the conflicts at Gallipoli, the Middle East and the Western Front, and post-war life for those who returned. Engage with these personal stories through interactive, multimedia displays, poignant artifacts, rare images and film, and audio commentary. On 1 November 1914, the first convoy of Australian and New Zealand troops departed for the First World War from King George Sound, Albany. For many, Albany was their last sight of Australian soil. Today Albany is known as the birthplace of the Anzac story and the home of the National Anzac Centre. As the story of conflicts within the National Anzac Centre draws to a close, the names of the 41,265 servicemen and women who left Albany in the first and second convoys are revealed: scrolling beneath a Pool of Reflections. The experience concludes with the discovery of each character’s fate and a Tribute Wall where visitors may document their own feelings and messages to the Anzacs.

What people are saying about Western Australia

Purchasing my tickets through Get Your Guide was easy and quick. The visit to the National Anzac Museum in Albany was a very interesting and emotional experience. My husband and I loved it. The whole experience is very well-designed and provides an immersive experience into the times and lives of our soldiers and their families in WW1 days, focussing on those who left from Albany in the first couple of contingents to depart for overseas. I would totally recommend a visit here.

A moving tribute to all who served in WW1. Well displayed but suggest users would benefit if the interactive panels included some explanation about how to access the information contained therein. Enjoyed being able to follow my grandfather's journey through one of his peers. Ian

Beautiful Versailles, ticket at a reasonable price, everything well written, except where to download the audioguide. Only "downloadable" information on the booking, but it is not clear where from ...

Fabulous location!! All the information was put together in a very interesting and interactive way. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the surrounding area.

My 10 year old grandson says it was so much fun and amazing and cant wait to go there again
