ANZAC Parade, Reid, 2612
Open at ALL times.
ANZAC Parade is the National Capital's major commemorative way. Memorials dedicated to Australian and New Zealand service people who've fought and died in war line the length of the Parade. Download a podcast of the memorials from the website. The red gravel central strip of this visually powerful landmark was originally made from crushed Canberra house bricks, chosen, in part, to echo the crunch made by military boots during a parade. ANZAC parade's dark eucalypt 'walls' are created by Victorian Blue Gum. The planter boxes are sewn with native New Zealand Hebe Otari Delight to symbolise the ANZAC connection.
