Light up the dawn

This ANZAC Day

How will you light up the dawn this year? The choice is yours – commemorate our veterans with a traditional Dawn Service at your local cenotaph, or honour them from home at 6am. We are committed to safely honouring our veterans, past and present - whether at traditional services, or by commemorating personally at home.

Listen to the service

If you’re commemorating at home this year, we’ve put together a short audio ANZAC Day Service which you can either download and play at 6am, or stream via player
