At 11am each day, the Anzac Memorial pauses for a Service of Remembrance. Visitors are invited to participate in this moving service with the recitation of the Ode and the sounding of the Last Post and Rouse after one minute of silent contemplation.

The galaxy of golden stars adorning the Memorial’s dome represents the men and women of NSW who embarked for overseas service during the Great War (1914–18).

All visitors to the Memorial are welcome to take a commemorative star bearing the name of an Australian serviceman or woman killed on active service, or a veteran who has since passed away, and cast it into the Well of Contemplation following a moment of reflection. This personal tribute was designed to reflect the original intention of the stars that illuminate the Memorial’s dome.

Stars that are released into the Well are collected and kept on site until they are cremated at Rookwood Cemetery. The ashes are carried on annual pilgrimages by the Premier’s Anzac Memorial Scholars to significant sites associated with Australian military history.
