Anzac Day

Wednesday 25 April 2018

This Anzac Day, we remember and recognise the service and sacrifice of members of the Australian Defence Force.

Originally a commemoration of the landing of Australian and New Zealand forces on Gallipoli on 25 April 1915, Anzac Day is a public expression of gratitude and reflection resonates to the present day.

This year will see the Anzac Day march led for the first time by men and women who served in recent conflicts, embodying the enduring nature of the Anzac spirit.

6am Dawn Service

All are welcome at the rising of the sun to commemorate the service and sacrifice of Australian service men and women. One minute of silence will be observed. Recommended arrival between 4am – 5am.

For those unable to attend the Dawn Service, you can view a live stream of the event online.

9am Anzac Day march

Thousands of veterans, their descendants and current serving personnel will march down St Kilda Road, starting at the intersection of Flinders and Swanston Streets and concluding at the Shrine of Remembrance. Unit wreaths will be laid at the Shrine progressively during the March.

Commemorative service

At the conclusion of the March a service will take place on the Shrine Forecourt, including an Address from the Governor of Victoria.
