ANZAC War Memorial, Sydney
Completed in 1934 on the southern extremity of Sydney’s Hyde Park, the ANZAC War Memorial was built as a memorial to the Australian Imperial Force who fought in World War I. Following the first anniversary of the Anzac’s landing on Anzac Cove for the Battle of Gallipoli during WWI, fundraising began and by 1929 a competition for the memorial’s design was commissioned. Designed by C. Bruce Dellit with monumental sculptures by Rayner Hoff, this concrete building – featuring Art Deco setbacks and large, arched yellow-stained glass windows – is positioned with a large ‘Lake of Reflections’ symbolising the area in which the Australian troops fought. Today, the memorial is used in commemoration ceremonies for Anzac Day, Remembrance Day and other important occasions.
