NT illuminates ANZAC history in series of tributes

In support of this year’s ANZAC commemorations, Northern Territory history has come to life in a new way with moving and powerful symbols of ANZAC illuminated by projections in Katherine and Darwin.

The projections, ‘Light Up the Anzac Spirit’, included a mixture of historical and present-day imagery, including commemorative and iconic images of people and places.

The projection showcased Australia and the Northern Territory’s rich ANZAC history, the NT Government said in a statement.

The projections are accompanied by a moving audio scape which can be experienced through an immersive Silent Cinema style headphones, for both the Katherine and the Darwin Waterfront Installations.

On Friday, Light Up the Anzac Spirit was projected onto an iconic semi-trailer 15 metres wide and three metres high in Katherine.

On Saturday, the Peninsula lawns at the Darwin Waterfront came to life, before moving to Darwin Esplanade next to the Cenotaph today, where the projections can be experienced from 7pm – 9.30pm.

A final screening will be shown on the morning of the 25th before the Anzac commemorations begin.
