ANZAC Day commemorates the landing of Australian and New Zealand forces at Gallipoli on the 25th April 1915, but is also much more than this. It is a day when we recognise the service and sacrifice of all Australians who have served in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.
ANZAC Day, Tuesday 25 April is a public holiday, with many businesses closed or operating with restricted trading hours.
