ANZAC Day, originally a commemoration of the landing of Australian and New Zealand forces at Gallipoli on the 25th April 1915, has become a day on which we remember the service and sacrifice by Australian service men and women in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. It’s a day on which Australians reflect on the ANZAC spirit and its place in Australia today.
ANZAC Day 2016 will mark the 101st anniversary of the Gallipoli landings – and as part of the Tasmanian Centenary of ANZAC commemorations, we encourage all Tasmanians to get involved.
There are many ways to participate on ANZAC Day, wherever you may be in Tasmania. From the Dawn Service at Hobart’s Cenotaph, to your local RSL, take the time to commemorate and remember those who have made the ultimately sacrifice for their beautiful country in which we continue to live in.
