The Canning ANZAC Centenary War Memorial commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign and the struggle and sacrifice of Australia's servicemen and servicewomen. The memorial consists of four elements: the Memorial Path, the Sites of Conflict, Ataturk's Tribute and the Wish for Peace. The Memorial Path is based on a 1915 map of Anzac Cove, which forms a physical and conceptual foundation for this artwork. The main element taken from the map is a broken line that marks the Australian and New Zealand front-line trenches running north/ south along Anzac Cove. The trench line is represented on the Memorial Path using 100 granite stones, one for each year since the ANZAC landing. Each stone carries a word or place name from the original map, linking the locations and experiences of those who served at Anzac Cove. The Sites of Conflict are housed in the Grove. This is a space for remembrance of the many conflicts where Australians have served, both on home-soil and overseas. The Turkish Military General, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk's Tribute to all Australians honours the heroism and self-sacrifice of the Turkish and ANZAC soldiers who took part in the bitterly fought Gallipoli campaign.
