Australia is better known for its curiously cute marsupial population and unsullied beaches than its wartime heritage, but the Anzac War Memorial in Sydney is a startling reminder of the countrymen who have served the country’s interests during times of war. The Art Deco memorial was completed in 1934, designed by 32-year-old Sydney architect Bruce Dellit. Unlike many memorials, Anzac combines quiet, contemplative spaces with functional offices that house organizations assisting returned soldiers. Exterior sculptures by Rayner Hoff depict grieving heroes from Australia’s Great War dressed in modern military uniforms. A flame donated by the Australian Gas Light Company burns in perpetuity in the designated Flame Room, symbolizing Australian men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.
