  1. Framing Memory

    This exhibition brings together, for the first time, unique and beautifully framed soldier portraits from the First World War. Each design painted on the reverse of the glass surrounding the photograph is different, along with each soldier’s story. The Memorial has the largest collection of these fragile portraits. They are rarely on display and seeing them together is not to be missed.

  2. After The War

    After the War is a new exhibition exploring the personal stories of hope, loss, and love of ordinary Australians whose lives have been altered by war, from those who have served to loved ones left behind. Take an intimate journey through the personal costs and consequences of war, unfolding over 100 years from 1918 to 2018.
