Sydney Harbour Bridge Pylons Light Up To Honour Fallen ANZACs
To honour the fallen ANZACs for the centenary of the Gallipoli landing, Roads and Maritime Services will showcase a series of poignant images from World War I onto the eastern face of the north and south pylons of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Telling The Story: About The Images
The images will feature 6 ANZAC-related themes:
Call to War
Portraits of ANZACs
Each image will be supported by information on the Roads and Maritime Services website, providing information for viewers on the history and background of each image.
The Symbolism Of The Poppy Animation
Every projection series will feature a 2 minute animation of poppies ‘falling’ from the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge pylons.
By the end of the week’s projections, more than 62,000 poppies will have ‘fallen’ from the pylons, representing each of the 62,000 fallen Australians in World War I.
The project is being funded by Roads and Maritime Services & administered by the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet.
