ANZAC Hall shows some of the Memorial’s most significant large objects, using sound and light in innovative ways: the objects themselves become screens to tell compelling stories of Australia’s servicemen and women.
G for George: Witness a stunning re-creation of a night operation over Berlin in 1943, featuring the famous Lancaster bomber "G for George". This exhibition, called Striking by night, vividly conveys the exploits and experiences of the people, from both sides, who lived through the bombing offensive.
Submarine: Discover the Memorial’s famous midget submarine, assembled from sections of two of the three submarines that raided Sydney in 1942. The exhibition Sydney under attack uses sound and light to suggest the drama and tragedy of the events that night.
First World War aircraft: A large part of the Hall contains the permanent exhibition, Over the front: the Great war in the air. It tells the story of military flight and aerial combat during the First World War using original and extraordinary aircraft and an exciting sound-and-light show.
