Remembering Australia's War Dead

Places of Pride is Australia's national register of war memorials. It is a database and interactive map of the thousands of honour boards, sculptures, statues and other memorials which have been erected to remember Australia's war dead.

At the heart of Places of Pride is an interactive map which allows anyone to search for a war memorial by location, the name of an individual memorial or by state. Individuals and organizations can record and submit their own local memorials to the map if they don't already feature.

The national register of Australian war memorials is being maintained by the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. The Australian War Memorial is the national memorial to members of the armed forces who have died or participated in service to their country. The Places of Pride project will be used as part of a new display at the Australian War Memorial in the capital. It will help to memorialize the role played by service men and women from across the country.

On a similar theme - below is a map for Honouring Anzacs in Ballarat, Victoria
It includes a map with the details of each tree dedicated to an Anzac on the Avenue of Honour (3689 in total)
