Anzac Parade starts at Driver’s Triangle, a small park at the intersection of Moore Park Road and South Dowling Street at Moore Park.[1] It is a southward extension of Flinders Street, on the border of Surry Hills and Paddington. At this intersection there is also an entrance to the Eastern Distributor. The street received its name in memory of members of the First Australian Imperial Force (later to become known as Anzacs) who marched down the street from their barracks (now a heritage listed part of the University of New South Wales) to Sydney Harbour, where they were transported to Europe during World War I.

Anzac Parade passes south through the suburbs of Moore Park, Kensington, Kingsford, Maroubra, Matraville, Malabar, Chifley and Little Bay before ending at a loop at La Perouse. It was designated State Route 70 from 1974 until 2004.

Major landmarks along Anzac Parade include the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and the National Institute of Dramatic Art (known as NIDA), where a number of well-known actors (including Mel Gibson, Cate Blanchett and Judy Davis) received their training.

In February 2015, the Albert Cotter Bridge across Anzac Parade opened. This pedestrian and cycle bridge was built to improve access to events at the Sydney Cricket Ground and Sydney Football Stadium.[2]
