Australian War Memorial - Anzac Day 2015

Saturday 25 April 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the landing of Anzac troops on Gallipoli. On this day the Australian War Memorial will be hosting two ceremonies of national significance, the Dawn Service and the National Ceremony, to commemorate the courage and sacrifice of those who have served Australia during periods of war and peace.
All the information you need to know about both of these ceremonies can be found on our website. All members of the public are welcome to attend.
There will be a special Last Post Ceremony held at 4.45 pm on Anzac Day. In commemoration of the centenary of the landings on Gallipoli, members of both the Australian Defence Force and the Turkish Armed Forces will participate in the ceremony.
This year the Memorial will also be broadcasting the Dawn Services from Anzac Cove on Gallipoli and Villers-Bretonneux in France. We encourage you to come along and watch the services on large screens that will be displayed in the Memorial’s grounds. For more information and a map of where the screens will be located, visit our website.
