Armistice in Australia, 1918

Birdwood Avenue, Melbourne, Victoria, 3000
08 Nov 2018

News of the armistice that ended the First World War arrived in Australia late on 11 November 1918. That moment witnessed an outburst of emotion in public rarely seen. On the surface – and in the streets - the response was a mixture of exultation and relief. But only slightly less obvious were more difficult feelings of pain, loss and bitterness, as Australians took the opportunity to reassess what four years of war had meant.
