This ANZAC Day on 25 April, the RSL are encouraging you to Light up the Dawn and Commemorate your way.
How you honour and remember those who are serving and those who have served is up to you. Take time to reflect on ANZAC Day in a way that means the most to you.
The ANZAC Spirit lives on in us all, and on ANZAC Day we invite you to honour our Defence men and women in a way that is meaningful to you. We encourage all Australians to take the time to commemorate – whether at a march, an ANZAC Day service or by lighting up the dawn at home.
