Anzac Memorial, Hyde Park, Sydney

This memorial, to perpetuate the memory of the men and women of New South Wales who served in the first World War, was built from the proceeds of public subscription and a State Government grant.

The structure is 100 metres high, its exterior being finished in red granite and the interior in New South Wales white marble. On the main approach is the Lake of Reflections bordered by poplar trees.

On the ground floor is the Hall of Silence, in the centre of which is a bronze group of sculpture depicting Sacrifice. Above is the Great Dome of Stars upon which have been placed 120,000 stars: one for every man and woman from New South Wales who served in the first World War. Immediately above the Hall of Silence and overlooking the Sacrifice is the Hall of Memory. On either side of each approach to the memorial are urns symbolizing the resting place of the ashes of departed war heroes.
