Visitors will now begin to notice changes around our external grounds when they arrive at the Memorial. Please see information below advising of current works on-site to help you plan your visit.
Sculptures and Plaques
Temporary changes will be made to the location of a number of sculptures located throughout the Memorial as construction preparations begin after Anzac Day 2021.
More information on the sculptures affected, new temporary locations, or expected return to display dates, will be provided as it becomes available.
Improved accessibility from Underground Parking
A new pedestrian access way from the existing underground carpark to the Poppy’s Café forecourt, will provide an exit from the carpark during construction, and will remain as a permanent improvement to visitor circulation.
Fencing and Hoarding
Temporary fencing and hoardings are now being installed around some sections of the Memorial grounds, to help ensure visitor safety as Enabling Works begin. All worksites will be physically separated from the public areas during these major construction activities.
These can be seen around the back of the Main Building, behind the Memorial’s Administration building, behind the CEW Bean Building, and along East Road. Later this year fencing and hoardings will be installed to the southern side Treloar Crescent, and around the Parade Ground.
Temporary Contractor Compounds
Three temporary contractor compounds are being installed around the Memorial, to be used by our trade and construction workers. These compounds will be located at the rear of the Administration Building in the Western Carpark, in the Eastern Carpark on Treloar Crescent behind the CEW Bean building, and on the lawns south of Poppy’s café.
The Memorial’s intention is to keep the contractor accommodation connected to the individual work sites and to limit the amount of crossover with visitors where possible.
