Public Holiday – ANZAC Day

April 25

Public Holiday - Anzac Day 1

ANZAC Day is a day of remembrance. At dawn on 25th April 1915 a contingent of Australian and New Zealand Soldiers (ANZAC) landed on Turkey’s Gallipoli Peninsula.

In December 1915, the Allies commenced to withdraw, having suffered heavy casualties. From the Gallipoli landing the tradition of ANZAC began with the ideals of mateship and sacrifice that distinguish and unite all Australians irrespective of their origins.

ANZAC Day, the 25th of April each year, is the day Australia commemorates with services and marches in cities and towns and throughout the world where servicemen, servicewomen, and peacekeepers are stationed, to remember all those who lost their lives in service to their country, in all wars.

We Will Remember Them.

Lest We Forget.
