At the National ANZAC Centre interactive
displays will take you on an intimate journey of a participant of the war.  Under the shade of trees planted to remember
fallen soldiers, the Avenue of Honour leads to the Memorial of the Desert
Mounted Corps
.  The dawn service is Padre
White’s story. Take in the view that the departing ANZAC Troops had before they
sailed onwards to war; for some of them, the last vision of homeland.

Curving around Mt Adelaide, Breaksea
Island comes into view and stories of the construction of the lighthouse and
its connection to the ANZAC narrative are revealed.  At Middleton Beach we pause a moment to
absorb the vista of the ocean and perhaps, if lucky, a glimpse of sheltering
whales and calves. Journeying into the city centre, along the way we drive past
the oldest farm in Western Australia and learn of the contribution it made to
the social life and nourishment of the early community; a property with a
chequered history.  Visit one of the
earliest homes in Australia at Patrick Taylor Cottage.
