Anzac Day Services Australian War Memorial

Share with:

On April 25th each year, we come together to remember and honour the brave men and women who have served and sacrificed for their country. This year, the Australian War Memorial in Canberra will be hosting a range of Anzac Day services to commemorate the occasion.

The day will begin with a Dawn Service at 5.30am, a solemn and moving ceremony that marks the time of the original Gallipoli landing in 1915. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early to secure a spot, as the event typically draws large crowds.

Following the Dawn Service, at 7.30am, a number of ceremonies and commemorations will take place including, the National Ceremony and ACT RSL Veterans’ march. The march will feature a range of dignitaries and military representatives along Anzac Parade. The ceremony includes the laying of wreaths, the playing of the Last Post, a minute’s silence, and the national anthem.

Tickets are not required to attend the Dawn Service and Veterans’ March, but tickets are required to enter the galleries and attend the Last Post Ceremony. More details on Anzac Day 2024 ceremonies, marches and commemorations will be available closer to the day.

Throughout the day, visitors to the War Memorial will have the opportunity to explore the galleries and exhibitions, including special displays related to Anzac Day.

Anzac Day Canberra at the Australian War Memorial is a significant occasion, attracting locals and travelers coming together to commemorate the significant sacrifice made by service men and women.
