Acclaimed Anzac Centenary Experience Opens At Darwin Convention Centre

Published on : Saturday, October 22, 2016

imagesThe highly acclaimed free touring exhibition, the Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience, opens
at the Darwin Convention Centre today and runs from 17 – 24 October 2016 from 9.00am –
5.30pm daily.
The world class Darwin Convention Centre, set on historic Stokes Hill Wharf, is a fitting venue for the event, which promises to be an informative and moving tribute to the men and women who served in Australia’s armed forces.

 
“Given Darwin’s rich military and cultural history and the large number of defence force
personnel living in and around Darwin today, we know this event will be of immense interest to locals and visitors alike”, said Darwin Convention Centre Director of Business Development, Kellie Robertson.

 
This free interactive event tells the story of Australia’s involvement in the First World War. It follows a chronological timeline spanning the period from pre-First World War Australia to the present day, using a mix of visuals, artefacts, audio and film to engage visitors.

 
A key feature of the experience is the curated ‘local stories’ zone. The local stories zone for
Darwin has been created in close collaboration with the local community and will contribute to the already significant legacy that exists in this region.

 
Major General (retired) Brian Dawson from the Australian War Memorial said WWI had a “huge impact” on Australia.

 
“A nation of 4.5 million in 1914, and there were over 60000 killed in the First World War,” he said. “There wasn’t really a village or a family that wasn’t affected in some way in the loss and what occurred.”
