The Australian War Memorial is the country's national memorial to the members of all its armed forces and supporting organisations who have died or participated in the wars of the Commonwealth of Australia. It includes an extensive national military museum.
The Memorial is located in Canberra, Australia's capital. It is the northern terminus of Canberra's ceremonial land axis, which stretches from Parliament House on Capital Hill, along a line that passes through the summit of Mount Ainslie to the northeast.
Even thourgh no continuous roadway links the two points, there is a clear line of sight from the front steps of the War Memorial to Parliament House, and from the front balcony of Parliament House back to the War Memorial .
