The Australian War Memorial's magnificent heritage building is situated beneath picturesque Mt Ainslie, only two minutes from Canberra's city centre and ten minutes from the airport. The Memorial is one of the world's great museums and renowned for its extensive collection of art, relics, photographs, film and sound commemorating the sacrifice of Australians at war.

The Australian War Memorial combines a shrine, a world-class museum, and an extensive archive. The Memorial's purpose is to commemorate the sacrifice of those Australians who have died in war. Its mission is to assist Australians to remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on Australian society.

Our unique function spaces are set among large rare, historic objects and authentic works of art created by some of Australia’s leading artists. The Memorial is one of very few places where you can dine amid such amazing objects. The Memorial’s newly refurbished venues will provide your function with a difference, making it one your delegates will remember.

To complement your functions the Memorial can arrange gallery tours, performances, audiovisual screenings and ceremonies for your guests. We can tailor pre-dinner tours of the Memorial's galleries, guided by an expert, to fit your particular needs. Guests can discover an outstanding collection of works by Australian artists including Arthur Streeton, William Dobell and Sidney Nolan, or take a close look at the Hall of Valour which honours the 100 Australians who have received the Victoria Cross, the highest award for bravery in time of war.
