At the end of every day the Memorial farewells visitors with its moving Last Post Ceremony in the Commemorative Area. Each night the ceremony shares a different story behind one of the names on the Roll of Honour.
The ceremony begins with the Australian national anthem followed by the piper's lament. Visitors are invited to lay wreaths and floral tributes beside the Pool of Reflection. An individual's story is told, and the Ode is recited Australian Defence Force personnel. The ceremony ends with the sounding of the Last Post.
The Last Post Ceremony is an increasingly popular public event. We recommend early arrival as the Memorial is unable to reserve spaces for groups. The ceremonies are also streamed online on the Memorial's YouTube and Facebook pages.
To see whose stories will be shared in upcoming Last Post Ceremonies please visit the Last Post Ceremony webpage.
