Summary

Produced by the National Estate to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Gallipoli, this poster features captioned photographs of Australian war memorials. Text reads: 'This poster was created to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Gallipoli by reminding Australians of the many special places on the register of the National Estate which we keep as memorials to the gallant ANZACS. The photographs are examples of places connected in some way to Gallipoli and World War One. They form part of the list of more than 900 historic, natural and Aboriginal national estate places which make up the register compiled by the Australian Heritage Commission'.

Established under the Australian Heritage Commission Act 1975, the Register of the National Estate is a list of natural, Indigenous and historic heritage places throughout Australia. Under that Act, the Australian Heritage Commission entered more than 13,000 places in the register. In 2004, responsibility for maintaining the Register shifted to the Australian Heritage Council and a new heritage system was subsequently established: the National Heritage List, which was designed to recognise and protect places of outstanding heritage to the nation, and the Commonwealth Heritage List, which includes Commonwealth owned or leased places of significant heritage value.
