All Tasmanians are encouraged to commemorate Anzac Day on 25 April 2020 and give thanks for the service and sacrifice of those who have served our country.
To protect the health and safety of our veterans and all who honour them, we are asking Tasmanians to follow Australian Government directions not to gather in groups, and instead commemorate the day in different ways:
5.30am Australian War Memorial Commemorative Service ABC TV, ABC Radio, Facebook and iview
This year, the Australian War Memorial in Canberra will hold a private, nationally televised Anzac Day commemorative service. The traditional Dawn Service, National Ceremony and veterans’ march will not take place. For more information on broadcast and streaming services and start times, please visit Australian War Memorial.
6.00am Light up the Dawn
Let’s be united in the ANZAC spirit. Across the nation, Australians are being invited to honour the service of our Defence Forces, past and present, by standing at their front door or on their balcony at 6.00am and observing a minute’s silence.
11.30am RSL Tasmania Commemorative Service ABC Radio
In a special event, RSL Tasmania will hold a private service. The event will not be open to the public but we invite you to join in the live broadcast via ABC’s Facebook pages www.facebook.com/abchobart/ and www.facebook.com/abcnorthtas/ and ABC local radio. For more information you can also visit RSL Tasmania’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/RSLTasmaniaBranch/
This is a joint initiative of RSL Tasmania and the Tasmanian Government. For more information, please contact RSL Tasmania by email at email@example.com or by telephone on (03) 6242 8900.
