Anzac Day is a day to remember all of our servicemen and women – their actions, their bravery, their sacrifice, and their ingenuity. It’s also a chance to reflect on the horrors of war and resolve to learn from the lessons and experiences of war.
Services are held at dawn and later in the morning. There is normally a march by returned and service personnel to the local war memorial where they are joined by other members of the community. Shops and bars remain closed on Anzac Day morning.
