What is Anzac Day?
April 25th, Anzac Day is one of the most important national commemorative occasions in Australia. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand services during the First World War.
This year will mark 100 years since the first landing of our Anzac troops on the shores of Gallipoli.
What does ANZAC stand for?
ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as Anzacs, and the pride they took in that name endures to this day.
