National Anzac Centre
Set spectacularly on the slope of Mount Adelaide overlooking King George Sound, where the ships gathered that were carrying Australian and New Zealand troops to the First World War, the award winning National Anzac Centre is one of Australia’s ‘must-do’ experiences. Voted best Museum in Australia by TripAdvisor correspondents for three years out of four, this Museum, located in the grounds of the Princess Royal Fortress, offers a fascinating experience. The history of World War I is told in the National Anzac Centre through the stories of 32 men and women who experienced the war - and each visitor is given a card to intimately follow the story of one of the 32. Stop for a moment in the contemplation room to remember those whose lives were lost in the Great War, and to survey the magnificent natural beauty of King George Sound. The items on display are on loan from a variety of sources including families of returned service people, private collections, and large collecting organisations such as the Australian War Memorial and the Western Australian Museum.
