Monday 25 April @ 6am
East Coast Memorial
Battery Park (southern end)
The Service will be held rain or shine - we encourage you to come prepared with warm clothing & an umbrella in case of inclement weather.ANZAC Day is when we pause to remember those Australians and New Zealanders killed in war, to honour returned servicemen and servicewomen and to pay tribute to those personnel who are currently serving their countries. Although its timing recalls the landing at Gallipoli of the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps on 25 April 1915, the Commemorative Service is for all those who have given their lives during conflict.
