Dawn Service

The Australian War Memorial hosts the Dawn Service in close cooperation with the Returned and Services League of Australia ACT.

In 2020, we came together in spirit, instead of in person.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the commemorative service was not open to the public but was attended by dignitaries representing the Commonwealth of Australia, the people of New Zealand, the Returned and Services League and veterans.

The Anzac Day Commemorative Address was given by the Honourable Scott Morrison MP, Prime Minister of Australia.
