ANZAC Centenary

ANZAC Centenary

The ANZAC Centenary is a national program that will run from 2014 to 2018 marking one hundred years since Australia's involvement in the First World War. It also recognises Australians who have served our country in other wars, conflicts and on peace operations over the past one hundred years — the Century of Service. Qantas is proud to collaborate with the Australian Government to support ANZAC Centenary activities, including a special flight for Australians travelling to Turkey for ANZAC Day.

Australian War Memorial

Australian War Memorial

The Australian War Memorial combines a shrine, a world-class museum, and an extensive archive.

The Memorial's purpose is to commemorate the sacrifice of those Australians who have died in war. Its mission is to assist Australians to remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on Australian society.

The Australian War Memorial is established as a corporation by the Australian War Memorial Act 1980. The Memorial consists of three sub-programs: National Collection, Public Programs and Corporate Services.

Qantas is proud to be a Benefactor of the Australian War Memorial.

The Qantas Heritage Collection is a permanent exhibition of the rich and colourful history of Qantas. Located on the mezzanine level of Sydney Domestic Terminal (T3) near Gate 13, it is open to the public, free of charge Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 4.30pm.

Situated overlooking the spectacular background of landing and departing aircraft, it features superb panoramic views of Sydney airport.

Covering an area of 1,000 square metres, the exhibition was created by Qantas as a result of the voluntary work of 15 retired staff. Since the early 1990s, the group has worked diligently to sort, catalogue and preserve a diverse range of items. The Collection welcomes the donation of suitable items. Enquiries may be directed to the Curator on 0418 416 728 during business hours.
