What's New At the Memorial


  1. 'It still hasn't sunk in'

    For Rob Douma, the Napier Waller Art Prize was never about winning. It was about telling their stories.

  2. Rob Douma takes out the 2018 Napier Waller Art Prize

    The Australian War Memorial is pleased to announce Rob Douma as the winner of the inaugural Napier Waller Art Prize.

  3. 'A tribute that will go down in Australian history'

    When Phillip Johnson begins “planting” 62,000 poppies at the Australian War Memorial to mark the centenary of the Armistice, he will be thinking of his great-grandfather, Frederick Richard Johnson.
