Anzac Day

Anzac Day

On Anzac Day we come together, in person and in spirit, to commemorate the men and women who have served our nation in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.

The Memorial worked closely with ACT Health to ensure a safe Anzac Day 2021 welcoming thousands of people to the Anzac Day Dawn Service and National Ceremony on Sunday 25 April. Thousands more commemorated from afar and joined us online. 

The Anzac Day ceremonies were broadcast live across Australia on ABC TV and iView.
