The National Anzac Centre wants to recruit new troops to its League of Local Legends program and is now expanding its membership so residents within the shires of Plantagenet, Denmark and Jerramungup can sign up and enjoy the benefits.

Previously restricted to City of Albany residents and ratepayers, the League of Local Legends program will now include all residents of The Amazing South Coast partners, to encourage local visitation to the nationally significant attraction.

Signing up to be a League of Local Legends member is free and includes:

  • 50% discount on standard entry prices to the National Anzac Centre;
  • Free entry when chaperoning a paying visitor;
  • 10% discount for any accompanying visitors;
  • 10% discount on purchases at The Forts Store;
  • Free ANZAC biscuit with a hot drink at Garrison Restaurant;
  • Free glass of house wine with lunch at Garrison Restaurant; and
  • Monthly email updates on events and exhibitions at the National Anzac Centre.

Executive Director Community Services Susan Kay encouraged residents in Albany and the Amazing South Coast to sign up to the program.

“The National Anzac Centre is a fantastic facility of significance right in our backyard. The City of Albany wants everyone in the Amazing South Coast to be able to share this cultural experience and appreciate the story of the Anzacs first hand, so we’re really pleased to be able to offer these entry discounts to members,” Mrs Kay said.

“Princess Royal Fortress and the surrounding site is also full of history and a great place for a day visit, with barbecue and picnic facilities, so bring your friends and family to see Australia’s #1 museum next time they visit the region.”

All League of Local Legends members will receive free entry to the National Anzac Centre at the 5th anniversary celebrations on November 1 from 5pm to 7pm, and will be able to sign up at the event.

Residents can sign up to the free program on the National Anzac Centre website www.nationalanzaccentre.com.au/locallegends
