The spirit of Anzac, with its qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity

Tuesday 25 April 2017

Anzac Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day on which we remember all Australians who served and died in war and on operational service. The spirit of Anzac, with its qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity.

Anzac Day commemorations will begin on the evening of Sunday 23 April with the projection onto the Memorial building of images of Australian servicemen and servicewomen drawn from the Memorial’s rich photographic collection. These projections will run again on 24 April until the commencement of the Dawn Service.

In Canberra the Australian War Memorial, in close cooperation with the Returned and Services League of Australia ACT, will host the following:

  • Dawn Service
  • National Ceremony
  • Last Post Ceremony

The daily Last Post Ceremony will commence at 4.45 pm in the Commemorative Area. All members of the public are welcome to attend this special ceremony concluding the Memorial’s Anzac Day commemorations of the landings on Gallipoli.  It is anticipated that there will be a greater than normal number of people attending the Last Post Ceremony, therefore additional viewing screens will be placed outside the Memorial entrance for members of the public to safely view the proceedings. The ceremony will also be broadcast live on the Memorial’s Facebook page and dedicated Last Post Ceremony YouTube Channel.
