ANZAC Day 2021

ANZAC Day is one of Australia’s most important national days of commemoration and is observed on 25 April each year. ANZAC Day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by the ANZACs (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) at Gallipoli in Turkey in 1915, during WWI.

However, the importance of ANZAC Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli. It is a day to reflect on the sacrifices made by servicewomen and men of both Australia and New Zealand who have participated and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations and to send our thanks to those currently in service.
