Light Up Dawn for ANZAC Day

With all dawn services cancelled for the public in 2020, national RSLs are inviting Australians everywhere to commemorate our veterans this ANZAC Day by standing in your living room, front yard, or on your balcony at 6:00am to Light Up the Dawn. Simply join your neighbours by holding a candle in place, in lieu of attending your regular service.

Here are a number of ways you can remember all those who have served and sacrificed.

  • RSL South Australia offers this guide for running a memorial service at home, including words to recite The Ode, and links to play The Last Post and the National Anthem.
  • Live-stream a local event
  • Lobethal RSL live stream via facebook from 6:30am (@LobethalRSL).
  • RSL Queensland offers a full recorded service on their website.
  • ABC TV and Radio 891 will cover the Adelaide Dawn service from 5:55am (closed to public).
