In November 2018, the Federal Government announced $498 million to redevelop the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.

The redevelopment will increase visitor areas by 83 per cent or around 10,000 square metres to expand the exhibition and public program space which is currently at capacity. It will include:

  • a new temporary exhibition space
  • improved visitor orientation, wayfinding, and amenities
  • areas for respite and reflection
  • new education facilities
  • a theatre and functions space
  • a space to be used by veterans’ organisations
  • two electronic displays.

 

The War Memorial held a public consultation on the redevelopment plans in August and September 2018. A summary report will be publicly available by mid-December 2018.
