School Visits

Health and safety is top priority for the Memorial, and social distancing and hygiene guidelines remain in place. To safely manage school visits we have made necessary changes to school bookings, including removing teacher-guided time in the galleries.

For Term 4 2020 and Terms 1 and 2 2021, bookings can be made for primary students for the facilitated Wartime stories program only (at $5.50 per student). Secondary school visits remain suspended for Term 4 2020, however bookings can be made for secondary students for the facilitated We will remember them program in Terms 1 and 2 2021 ($5.50 per student).  Find out more.


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.
