The Place of the Spirit

On far-away shores, in a land of many legends, there was a devastating conflagration.


But emanating from this tragedy, a spirit was born.


Moved and stricken, the souls of all good Australians and New Zealanders, living and dead, coalesced and united.


They lifted up the fallen and they raised them.  They elevated them and the Anzac Spirit lived.

Over 100 years have gone by but still, “reckless valour in a good cause, enterprise, resourcefulness, fidelity, comradeship and endurance” * – the Spirit of Anzac – is to be found at their core.
