Anzac Day at the Australian War Memorial

Posted 21 Apr 2017

Visit the Australian War Memorial and attend the Dawn Service, National ANZAC Day Ceremony and Last Post Ceremony commemorating the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces in the First World War.

Anzac Day commemorations will begin at dusk on Monday 24 April, when images of Australian servicemen and servicewomen, drawn from the Memorial’s rich photographic collection, are projected onto the Memorial building.

On Tuesday 25 April, at 4.30 am excerpts will be read from the letters and diaries of Australians who experienced war firsthand. At 5.15 am all will be quiet before the Dawn Service commences in darkness at 5.30 am.
