The Australian War Memorial

Dubbed “Australia’s most sacred place” by Prime Minister Scott Morrison in his recent Anzac Day address, the Australian War Memorial is the nation’s tribute to the courage and sacrifice of generations of men and women who served in war.

On this special episode of Australian Aviation, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Matthew Anderson to discuss his pathway to being appointed the War Memorial’s director just a few weeks ago, how the institution fared on facilitating a remote commemoration of Anzac Day, and his priorities over the coming months in his new role.

Matthew explains how his team are navigating the disruptive environment of COVID-19, why the $498 million slated for the landmark’s development is critical for the local economy, and how the Australian defence industry can be more involved in supporting the War Memorial’s objectives.
