Canberra, Australia
24 October 2012

President Benigno S. Aquino III visited the Australian War Memorial in Canberra on the first day of his visit here.  He went first  to the Pool of Reflection then offered a wreath at the Hall of Memory, the center of the memorial and a quiet place for contemplation on the efforts of the people of Australia who suffered and died during wars. Afterwards, he signed the Visitors’ Book and had a tour of selected galleries inside the hall.

The Australian War Memorial is Australia’s national memorial for the members of its armed forces who participated and those who died in the wars of Australia. It is considered as one of the most significant memorials in the world.
