The Australian War Memorial is Australia's national memorial to the members of all its armed forces and supporting organisations who have died or participated in the wars of the Commonwealth of Australia
Last weekend, we were able to spend a couple of days in the Australian Capital Territory; the main aim was to revisit the iconic War Memorial (leading to ANZAC Day), the English-inspired Cockington Green and the mind-boggling displays of the Questacon Science Exhibition.
What I'm sharing today is mainly for ANZAC Day, some photos of the War Memorial and a few shots from around the city of Canberra.
As the nation commemorates the life of our diggers, let's spare a thought and prayers for those who are serving and defending our peace and freedom.
This is the Wall of Remembrance at the War Memorial; it has the names of all Australian service men and women killed in war.
Autumn is in full swing... and the temperature is already dropping to zero degrees
We stopped by the lake for some brekkie....
