The Anzac Memorial is a heritage-listed war memorial, museum and monument located in Hyde Park South, near Liverpool Street, in the Sydney central business district, in the City of Sydney local government area of New South Wales, Australia. The Art Deco monument was designed by C. Bruce Dellit, with the exterior adorned with monumental figural reliefs and sculptures by Rayner Hoff, and built from 1932 to 1934 by Kell & Rigby. It is also known as Anzac War Memorial, War Memorial Hyde Park and Hyde Park Memorial. The NSW Government-owned property was added to the New South Wales State Heritage Register on 23 April 2010.
The memorial is the focus of commemoration ceremonies on Anzac Day, Remembrance Day and other important occasions. It was built as a memorial to the Australian Imperial Force of World War I. Fund raising for a memorial began on 25 April 1916, the first anniversary of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) landing at Anzac Cove for the Battle of Gallipoli. It was opened on 24 November 1934 by Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester and, in 2018, major refurbishments were completed.

  • Peaceful, quite and reflective on an overcast afternoon in Sydney. The Anzac Memorial is heritage listed and is situated in Hyde Park. It is most impressive and can be seen from quite some distance away. It was built as a memorial to the Australian Imperial Force of World War 1. Fund raising began in in 1916 and is was completed in 1934. It is good to remember those who bravely gave their lives for their country, let them never be forgotten.
  • Art Deco monument/Memorial to the ANZAC. Heritage listed, built from 1932-1934. It is concrete with pink granite exterior. It's a beautifully maintained monument surrounded by leafy park and pool of Reflection.
