New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
Respect and remember the fallen
Each year, the Australian War Memorial holds The Remembrance Day National Ceremony, which includes a formal wreath laying and is attended by many high-level dignitaries and diplomats. Australia's Federation Guard and the Band of the Royal Military College, Duntroon will be on parade along the Parade Grounds at the front of the museum.
The general public is able to witness this ceremony, with free tickets available to book from the 6th October. The ceremony is 10:30am - 12pm approximately and will observe one minutes silence to remember all who have died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts. See the Australian War Memorial website for details and how to book.
This year, 11th November marks the 99th anniversary of the Armistice which ended the First World War (1914–18).
