Centenary of ANZAC projects: Talks and Tours

The State Library of South Australia (SLSA) is honouring the memory of those who served at the front lines on World War 1 and on the home front, through a series of projects.

State Library talks and tours

The State Library has also developed and presented a number of talks and tours relating to our WW1 collections, including readings from the original diaries of soldiers and nurses serving overseas. Several of these performances took place during the Remember Me: Lost Diggers of Vignacourt exhibition, and further performances are expected during 2015-2018. See our events and tours pages for details.

War Memorials of Adelaide Walking Tour

War memorials walking tour

The State Library has developed a self-guided walking tour of the War Memorials of Adelaide. The tour starts in the foyer of the State Library on North Terrace where a small plaque commemorates the service of Library, Museum and Art Gallery staff in World War I. After visiting memorials to the sacrifice of South Australian men and women in more than a century of conflict, the tour concludes with the War Horse Memorial on East Terrace.

The War Memorials of Adelaide Walking Tour is one of a series of tours the Library has been developing for mobile devices with internet access.

The Walking Tour app can be downladed from the AppStore, Google Play or Windows Store.

For information about all the tours included in the app, see the Walking tours for mobile devices guide.
