'Can You Hear Australia's Heroes Marching?' is a national war memorial song and a tribute to the ANZAC spirit of mateship, courage and sacrifice.

The heroes song was created from Peter's experience in visiting the Adelaide River War Cemetery (114 kms south of Darwin) in the Northern Territory and seeing the graves of Australians who gave their lives in the service and defence of their country. Peter felt he should do something within his capabilities to honour the memory of such incredible sacrifice.

"To stand on my homeland, surrounded by our war dead, who fought heroically to defend Australia and their loved ones down the track, was a profound experience and initiated the creation of the song."
Peter Barnes

Instrumental recording by Fountain Gate Secondary College Band, Narre Warren, Victoria

The song is very spiritual and compelling and the Fountain Gate Secondry College Band has added to that with their incredible instrumental music. The guitar work is so inspiring and uplifting the listener to fully experience what the song and music is all about.

Over 100,000 Australians have lost their lives in the service and defence of our country. Along with their mates, they're marching once again, in the towns and cities, across our great land.

The song is timeless and honours the memory of those who have died in the service and defence of Australia in war.

The marching theme of the song is especially powerful and supports the spirit of ANZAC Day. The song does not glorify war or endorse conflict of any kind. The song simply highlights the sacrifice of many Australians who died in the service and defence of our country in war.

The song has been used for commemorative purposes across Australia by schools, churches, choirs, bands, councils, retirement homes, military services, RSL branches and ANZAC tributes at NRL & AFL matches.

Many schools throughout Australia use this song for commemorative purpose.

Companies and businesses have asked to use the song leading up to (or on) ANZAC Day. For instance, stores have asked to have it played over their in-store sound system leading up to ANZAC Day. A mining company asked to use the song for their commemorative service.

Radio stations throughout Australia have broadcast the song leading up to ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day.

The song is also requested to be played at funerals (for veterans).
