Description

On 12 February, 1916, two hundred residents of Mount Hawthorn in Perth, Western Australia rallied together to build a cottage over the course of a single day for one of the first wounded ANZAC soldiers to return from the Gallipoli. Commemorating the 90th Anniversary of this unique community event, Anzac Cottage is a moving story of celebration and sacrifice which is still of immense relevance today.
