Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience in Wollongong in January

GILMORE residents are urged to be among the first in NSW to view the Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience when it opens in Wollongong in January.

The Australian Government, the Australian War Memorial and the Department of Defence, supported by the Commonwealth Bank and Telstra, are presenting the exhibition at the University of Wollongong Sports Hub.

The exhibition is free for the whole family and will be on display in Wollongong from January 11-20 before it travels to Melbourne.

Visitors can walk through recreated First World War environments, look at military artefacts from the Australian War Memorial, view films and even check out the Community Zone featuring local stories.

More than 50,000 Australians have already been through the exhibition in its first five locations with positive feedback.

Places are limited and bookings are essential.
