Abstract

Albany in Western Australia lays claim to special commemorative status as the last Australian place of anchor for the fleet that carried Australian and New Zealand troops to Egypt and eventually the slopes of Gallipoli in 1915. Recently, this claim has been given credibility by the National Commission on the Commemoration of the Anzac Centenary in Australia, a federal body set up to guide the Anzac centenary celebrations beginning in 2014. Albany’s aim is to mark out spaces of pilgrimage and ritual and to place itself at the ‘beginning’ of the Anzac narrative and tourist-pilgrim journeys to Gallipoli. Through an exploration of the sacralisation of the Albany landscape, this paper shows how Albany is pursuing its share of the Anzac mythology and concluding that leaving the shores of Albany may be as commemoratively important to the story of Anzac as arriving on the shores of Gallipoli.

Albany en Australie Occidentale réclame un statut commémoratif spécial car il s'agit du dernier lieu australien d'ancrage pour la flotte qui a transporté les troupes australiennes et néo-zélandaises en Égypte et peut-être sur les pentes de Gallipoli en 1915. Un organisme fédéral se mobilise pour guider les célébrations du centenaire d'Anzac débutant en 2014. Par une exploration du caractère sacré du paysage d'Albany, on montre comment Albany poursuit sa participation à la mythologie Anzac
