ANZAC Way is not a memorial to the dead. ANZAC Way is a memorial to the deeds and sacrifices of ordinary people and provides an avenue to the Cenotaph at which we gather each year to honour our dead of all wars and of all service.

ANZAC Way recognises the contribution of all Australians to the maintenance and protection of basic human freedoms worldwide.
