Australian Anzac Memorial Wellington

| February 28, 2015

The Australian Memorial commemorates the long and close relationship between Australia and New Zealand and our shared experience of war. The site is directly opposite New Zealand’s National War Memorial and Carillon in the new Pukeahu National War Memorial Park. The intervening space has been named ANZAC Square. Designed by Sydney architectural firm Tonkin Zulaikha Greer. The design features fifteen columns of rugged red sandstone blocks, symbolic of the ‘red centre’ of Australia, set in sandstone and basalt paving representing the close ties of the two nations.
