Wednesday 11 November 2015

This year 11 November marks the 97th anniversary of the Armistice which ended the First World War (1914–18). Each year on this day Australians observe one minute’s silence at 11 am, in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.

We encourage you to attend the Remembrance Day National Ceremony at the Australian War Memorial.


The Remembrance Day National Ceremony includes a formal wreathlaying and will be attended by many high-level dignitaries, diplomats, and students from each state and territory representing the youth of Australia. Australia’s Federation Guard and the Band of the Royal Military College will be on parade.

10.15 am to 12 noon approximately

We suggest you arrive by 9.45 am. Guests with pre-arranged seating are required to be seated by 10 am.

Standing room for the public is available on the day and you are welcome to bring chairs or rugs to view the ceremony in the grounds of the Memorial.

The Memorial’s galleries will open shortly after the ceremony.
