The centre continues to maintain a five star rating on trip advisor and is also ranked number 1 in the ‘things to do’ category for Albany.

In 2015, the centre was awarded the Gold Medal for ‘New Tourism Business’ at the WA Tourism Awards and also took out the Heritage Tourism Project category at the WA Heritage Awards, and was a finalist in the Australian Interior Design Awards 2015.

The development of the National Anzac Centre precinct also formed the core of the City of Albany’s entry into the WA Tourism Awards in the Local Government category, which earned a Bronze award in 2014, and a gold award in 2015 and 2016.
