Sydney architect Bruce Dellit was only 31 when he won the 1930 competition to design this beautiful grey-pink granite memorial to the Australian and New Zealand troops who fell in World War I. The striking bas - reliefs are by Rayner Hoff, who also made the central bronze sculpture in the ‘Well of Contemplation’ of an ANZAC figure held aloft on a shield by three women, symbolising the sacrifices of war. Around $6.5 million is being spent to shore up the monument in time for its 75th anniversary in 2009. An act of remembrance is held here at 11am daily and guided tours can be arranged at the reception desk in the monument’s base, where you’ll also find a small exhibition dedicated to Australia’s military history. CityRail Museum. Open 9am-5pm daily. Admission free. Wheelchair accessible.
