In 1914 over 41,000 service men and women left from Albany bound for World War I. For many this would be the last time they saw home. Today at this very location stands the state-of-the-art award winning National Anzac Centre which uses multimedia, interactive technology and historical artifacts to create a deeply personal connection with the past, as well as pay tribute to those who served.
Through traditional museum display and highly interactive multi-media content, visitors assume the identity of one of 32 actual service men or women, and follow their experience of the Great War: From recruitment, through training and embarkation, ship-board life on the convoys, the conflicts at Gallipoli, the Middle East, and the Western Front. Finally, for those lucky enough to survive, you will witness their return home and the difficulties they faced adjusting back into normal society.
