Australian War Memorial


This is the official Facebook page for the Australian War Memorial.

The Australian War Memorial combines a shrine, a world-class museum, and an extensive archive.  The Memorial's purpose is to commemorate the sacrifice of those Australians who have died in war. Its mission is to assist Australians to remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on Australian society.

The page is managed by members of the Memorial's Digital Experience team - Brie, Cynthia, Fleur and Krissy - though from time to time other staff will post content to the page. Please note that this page is monitored during business hours only.
