The Poppy Project

Between 2014 and 2018 Australia will commemorate the Anzac Centenary, marking 100 years since Australia’s involvement in the First World War.

In 2015, there will be a large number of activities commemorating 100 years since the Anzac Gallipoli landing.

From its association with poppies flowering in the spring of 1915 on the battlefields of Belgium, France and Gallipoli, the poppy has become a symbol of both great loss in war and hope for those left behind.

RSLWA saw an opportunity to bring several poppy projects together in 2014 and 2015. People from all over Australia are making and contributing knitted, crocheted, felt and satin poppies.

More information on the project and patterns are available at http://5000poppies.wordpress  


The poppies will be displayed in the Library from November 2014.

If your organisation is taking part in a poppy project we would love to have your support with any paper, knitted and material poppies that you can spare. Bring them to the Library anytime.
