The Australian War Memorial (AWM) will reopen to the public on Wednesday 1 July, but entry will be controlled and limited to mitigate public-health risks.
AWM’s web site says the iconic institution would put additional safety measures in place to ensure the health and well-being of its visitors, staff and volunteers, including visits that will be ticketed and timed.
“We thank you for your understanding and ask for your continued cooperation while we implement new conditions of entry.
Pre-booked ticketing will apply for general entry to the Australian War Memorial and also to attend the daily Last Post Ceremony.
Online booking facilities are not yet available, but entry to the memorial will still be free.
Advance information about ticket releases and other visitor updates will be notified via the eMemorial newsletter and on the AWM web site.
Spare tickets may be made available at the memorial entry – but only subject to capacity – so pre booking is strongly recommended.
The new arrangements are designed to mitigate the risk posed to the community by COVID-19.
Sanitising stations, additional and regular cleaning services, and onsite public health messaging will also be used.
