Australian War Memorial

The Australian War Memorial celebrates all past and present members of the nation's armed forces: those who have helped create its legacy and those who continue to uphold its traditions. Widely considered as one of the most significant war memorials in the world, the site features a commemorative area, a museum, hall of records, and a outdoor sculpture garden. The memorial building itself blends Byzantine architecture with Art Deco inspirations to create a monument that is as extraordinary as its honorees.

Old Parliament House

One of the greatest symbols of Australia's prowess in terms of government, the Old Parliament House, as the name indicates, is the former abode of the country's governing body. Located just behind the Parliament House, this majestic building was where the Federal Parliament resided from 1927 to 1988. Located in the Parkes neighborhood of the city, the structure lies close to the lakefront, and boasts an impressive acreage of gardens that envelop the building on all sides. Today, though the Parliament has moved, the Old Parliament House still holds a prominent position in the city's cultural scene, being the home to the Museum of Australian Democracy. The building also plays host to a range of events, including concerts, festivals, and many community events. See the website to know more.
