Anzac Day is an important day for Australia, a day that commemorates those who have fought gallantly in wars and armed conflicts and remembers those who lost their lives to safeguard the values and life we hold so dear.
The Anzac Day tradition stems from 25 April 1915, the day when Australian and New Zealand Army Corps landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula during WWI, and celebrates the values of courage, mateship and resilience that were shown there.
You can read more about Anzac Day's history and traditions, as well as Anzac Day activities all around Victoria, on the Returned & Services League (RSL) Victoria website.
There will be a number of services occurring throughout Boroondara to commemorate Anzac Day. It is suggested you arrive at least 15 minutes early.

Places of Pride
Share photos of your local war memorial and service this Anzac Day to help the National Register of War Memorials build our nation's archive.
