    In Changed forever, stories of migrants who have resettled in Australia from war-torn countries are presented beside those of recent veterans of overseas service in the Australian Defence Force. This moving exhibition explores the impacts of global and civil conflict in changing lives and shaping contemporary Australia.

    All have been redefined by the emotional and physical dislocation of war, and seek to reconcile this with their new lives.

    Enhanced with art, objects, photographs, audio-visuals and interactives, their personal stories reflect the range and depth of experiences in conflict and life post war.

    Australia Day has evolved from a small commemorative New South Wales holiday into a major national celebration. Australia Day is the most inclusive celebration of a national day in Australia, expressing the national diversity which has become such an important part of the Australian national character. Australia Day celebrates diversity and tolerance in Australian society. It is commemorated on this day each year with a 21-gun salute fired from the Shrine's Lower Forecourt by the Royal Australian Artillery. 

    Note: The salute is extremely loud and it is recommended that visitors with small children or pets maintain an appropriate distance from the guns.
