Since ANZAC Day is only a few days behind us, I thought I’d take you through a couple of the other tributes and memorials around Sydney.
The Sydney Cenotaph is located in Martin Place, and features a solider and a sailor guarding an empty tomb bearing the words ‘To Our Glorious Dead’ and ‘Lest We Forget’. Flowers and wreaths are left at the Cenotaph regularly throughout the year, and on ANZAC Day it is at the center of the pre-dawn service.
The ANZAC War Memorial, which sits in Hyde Park, is a beautiful memorial to the Australian Imperial Force of World War I. Completed in 1934, it features an art deco style with a number of reliefs, statues, and a lot of stars.
Finally we come to a temporary but very touching tribute outside of St Andrew’s Cathedral, the oldest cathedral in Australia. On ANZAC Day, people posted little crosses in the Field of Remembrance to commemorate their loved ones.
