2012 Anzac Day Local Services

Anzac Day Miranda 2011

Anzac Day is rightfully known as one of Australia’s most important national occasions marking the anniversary of the first major military action found by Australian and New Zealand forces during the first World War.

Today we recognise the 25th of April as a day of national remembrance through two forms:

  • Commemorative services are held at dawn across the nation to represent the time of the original landing. Later in the day, ex-servicemen and women meet to take part in marches through the major cities and in many smaller centres
  • Commemorative ceremonies are more formal occasions held at war memorials around the country for Australians to reflect on the many different meanings of war

Luckily we have a number of local services to attend in the Sutherland Shire:
