Battle of Beersheba

Battle of Beersheba

April - July 2017


The Battle of Beersheba was one of the most famous horse mounted battles of all time. This exhibition marks the centenary and showcases the ANZAC trail in southern Israel, tracing the footsteps of the Australian Light Horse leading up to the battle.

The Jewish National Fund (JNF) of Australia, the custodians of the ANZAC Trail, bring the story of the battle to life through diaries, maps and photographs of Trooper Ernest Paul of the 12th Australian Light Horse Regiment.

We invite you to come and discover where the close relationship between Australia and Israel began.

This exhibition is supported by the Australian Light Horse Association and the family of Trooper P.L. Townsend.

We are hosting a book launch for the book ‘Jewish Anzacs; Jews in the Australian Military’ written by Mark Dapin on Thursday 18 May at 6pm. Click here for more details.
