Remembering Australia’s War in Vietnam, 1962-1972

A new exhibition is open at the Anzac Memorial in Sydney’s Hyde Park. The exhibition marks the 50th anniversary of the end of Australia’s war in Vietnam — the defining event for an entire generation.

Discover the lived experiences of veterans of Australia’s war in Vietnam through the personal stories of four Australians – the last Australian engineer officer to leave Vietnam, one of the first RAAF gunship pilots to deploy, an Australian entertainer and a nurse working in a military hospital in Sydney.

The Memorial also houses a permanent exhibition showcasing items from its collection and telling the story of Australians who served in conflict and peacekeeping since the nineteenth century.

Entry to the Memorial is free and open every day, 9am to 5pm. For those unable to attend the new exhibition in-person, you can still explore it through an interactive, virtual gallery.
