Commissioned in 2006, the Sir John Monash Centre is designed to educate a new audience about Australia’s early role in international affairs and to share the stories of ordinary Australians doing extraordinary things on the battlefields of the Western Front. The Centre is named after General Sir John Monash, who led the Australian Corps with outstanding success on the Western Front in 1918. His success in the famous victory at Le Hamel became a template for military operations that followed. The Sir John Monash Centre establishes a lasting legacy from Australia’s Centenary of Anzac 2014-2018. It will be inaugurated in presence of both countries officials on April, 24th 201.
