Anzac Day

This Anzac Day we’ll 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 Australian War Memorial will welcome thousands of people to the Anzac Day Dawn Service and National Ceremony on Sunday 25 April.

Tickets to attend the Dawn Service, National Ceremony and Last Post Ceremony are now exhausted.
