What’s On: ANZAC Day 25th April (All Australia)

On the 25th April every year, Australians and New Zealanders take a moment to remember those who served and those who died “in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations” thoughout history. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and the remembrance day is held on this date to mark the first campaign in the First World War when these forces suffered major casualties and deaths.

This day is as important in Australia and New Zealand as our Remembrance Day is to us, so if you are over there do treat it with the respect it deserves. Also, if you are in Canberra on the 25th, you can visit the Australian War Memorial for its Dawn Service, a truly memorable experience.
