As the sun begins to rise on the morning of 25 April, we remember the Australia and New Zealand defence force personnel who have served their countries. We commemorate those who lost their lives on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey in 1915 (WW1), and those who have fought to protect our nation since.

We all have our own ways of commemorating the ANZAC’s. From attending ceremonies at the crack of dawn, wearing a poppy or our grandparents medals, to baking biscuits that were eaten during war times. We stand tall and proud to be Australian.

This ANZAC Day, we commemorate our fallen heroes, and the legacies they have left behind. We honour those who follow in the steps of the ANZAC’s, and continue to serve in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations around the world. We honour the families of defence force personnel who have missed special moments with their serving family members. We thank everyone for their service and sacrifice.

Lest we forget.
