The ANZAC Spirit in action

There are many impressive monuments, but memorials built, maintained and used by local communities enshrine that personal commitment in keeping the ANZAC spirit alive. The carefully maintained War Memorials in our suburbs, towns and local communities, well attended on ANZAC Day are living proof.

This spirit is no more evident than the Vincent Men's Shed constructing of the white crosses for ANZAC Cottage's, 'Field of Remembrance'. Anne has crosses and equipment to personalise them, and people are welcome to access them before the ceremony.

White crosses will cover the lawn at ANZAC Cottage

ANZAC Cottage, at No.38 Kalgoorlie Street in Mount Hawthorn, has a unique history; constructed as a practical monument to commemorate the Anzac's participation in the First World War, the first memorial to the Great War built in Australia. Open to the public on the first Sunday of each month from 1.00pm to 4.00pm, offering free entry and afternoon tea for a gold coin donation. All are welcome to attend and learn more about its unique history.
