Red poppies and images of veterans will light up Geelong’s City Hall as part of ANZAC Day commemorations across the region.
The projection program from artist Matt Bonner features the human impact of war and its devastation on the lives of so many families in the Geelong region.
The City of Greater Geelong is honouring the sacrifice of our service men and women by proudly commemorating ANZAC Day on Monday 25 April 2022.
Local RSL Sub-Branches in the region will run a number of services and marches on ANZAC Day.

Deputy Mayor Trent Sullivan
The projections are a moving tribute to those have served in our country’s defence, and those who continue to serve today. ANZAC day is a time to pause and reflect on the sacrifices of our defence force personnel and all those who have given their lives in service of our nation.
Veterans Affairs Chair, Councillor Eddy Kontelj
Dawn services and marches will be held across our region – from Eastern Beach to Lara, Portarlington, Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads, Drysdale and Norlane. Whether it’s attending a local service, buying a badge to support the ANZAC appeal, or making ANZAC biscuits, or emailing your support to our troops – there’s something everyone can do to honour our veterans.
ANZAC Day is a time to reflect on the horrors of war and feel grateful that we live in a peaceful country, particularly given the terrible events we are seeing in some other parts of the world.
