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 attend one of a number of services and parades occurring throughout Boroondara to commemorate Anzac Day.
