School Visits

The health and safety of visitors, veteran community, staff and volunteers remains top priority for the Memorial. As social distancing and hygiene guidelines remain in place due to Covid-19, we have had to make changes to visits to the Memorial, for schools and general public alike. To manage a reduced capacity, there will be no availability for new bookings for Term 3 (20 July until 30 September 2020). In order to provide access safely for as many students as possible, visits will be limited to Primary Schools only in Term 3 2020, with facilitated time in the galleries limited to a maximum of one hour. Limited capacity onsite may limit available access.

To cancel, retain, or modify current bookings for Term 3, please contact school.bookings@awm.gov.au  as soon as possible.

 

We look forward to welcoming your school group to the Memorial. Bookings are essential for all visiting schools. You'll find everything you need to organise and plan your visit on this page.

Memorial development project

The Memorial is undergoing several major development changes which will impact Education bookings and school visitors. To manage this impact the length of a school visit will be up to a maximum of three hours onsite. If you would like to enquire further or you would like assistance with making your booking please contact school.bookings@awm.gov.au.
