New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
Event:
Book your seat at the Australian War Memorial
The 11th of November this year marks the 98th anniversary of the Armistice which ended the First World War (191418). Each year on this day Australians observe one minute's silence at 11am, in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts. The Australian War Memorial also hosts The Remembrance Day National Ceremony, which will be held in the Parade Ground and surrounds between 10:30am - 12pm approximately. The ceremony includes a formal wreath laying and will be attended by many high-level dignitaries, diplomats and students from each state and territory representing the youth of Australia. Australia's Federation Guard and the Band of the Royal Military College, Duntroon will be on parade.

See the Australian War Memorial website for more details and how to book your free seat.
