The sculpture commemorates the centenary of the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) landing at Gallipoli in Turkey in April 1915 during World War One and also a century of service by the Australian Defence Forces. 

Sculptor Ben Dearnley invited the public to make their mark on the stone which stands as a powerful reminder of the ANZAC forces committment to our country over the past century. 

The Centenary of ANZAC 2014 to 2018 was an important period of national commemoration for Australia. Marking 100 years since our involvement in World War One, the ANZAC Centenary was a time to honour the service and sacrifice of our original ANZACs, and the generations of Australian servicemen and women who have defended our values and freedoms, in wars, conflicts and peace operations throughout a Century of Service.
