Completed in 1934, the Anzac Memorial, Hyde Park South, Sydney was built by the people of NSW as a Memorial to the young men and women from the State who had died in what was known then as the Great War for Civilisation 1914-18.
As Australia marks the 100th anniversary of the First World War, the NSW Government is enhancing the Anzac Memorial. The 'Centenary Project' will be the enduring legacy of the NSW commemorations. It will realise the vision of the original architect, Bruce Dellit, and introduce new spaces. The Centenary Project will allow the Memorial to tell the stories of NSW's involvement in all wars and peace-keeping missions and honour those who have served.
The facility will be officially opened on the Centenary of the Armistice that ended the Great War on 11 November 2018.
The Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies of New South Wales, after at least 5 moves over the past 129 years, is moving into a ‘permanent’ home in the refurbished and extended prestigious building.
The Institute will be accessible to our members and the public - including ability for our members to borrow from our extensive library.
A joint education and research centre that will enhance the study of defence and security issues.
