ANZAC Day is a day of remembrance. Every year, thousands of people come together to pay tribute to and remember our brave ANZAC sons who landed under fire on the Gallipoli Peninsula.
In 2018, we continue to mark the centenary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces in First World War. This year we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Second World War and 50 years since some the Vietnam War’s major battles.
There are numerous ANZAC Day services taking place within Geelong and on the Bellarine Peninsula on the morning of ANZAC Day.
