Explore the ANZAC experience online
You can observe this ANZAC Day through delving into the Parramatta Heritage and Visitor Information Centre website, where they have collated a very special selection of historical documents, photos and in-depth articles from a range of experts.
Deepen your understanding of the ANZAC experience; exploring extensive archives. Discover the lives of the men and women who went to war: from the tireless work of Australian women who travelled overseas to nurse the wounded and work behind the lines in support, to the harrowing Fromelles campaign and of course, the doomed landing at Gallipoli.
There is special attention paid to the role of Parramatta men and women, such as Private Henry James Robinson, who after enlisting and beginning his military career Marseilles was admitted to hospital and returned to service four times, before being killed in action in Belgium.
So after you've stood at your front door, your balcony or at the end of your driveway at 6am this ANZAC Day in honour of these men and women, be further inspired by this unique collection online at the Parramatta Heritage and Visitors Centre.
