ANZAC Day in Perth

ANZAC Day, is a solemn day of remembrance, gratitude and national pride. On 25 April 1915, during the First World War, the historic dawn landing of Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers at Gallipoli occurred.

To commemorate this significant event, the Returned & Services League of Australia, Western Australia Branch Incorporated (RSLWA) will be hosting the annual ANZAC Day Dawn Service in Kings Park and Botanic Garden. There will also be a number of events and festivals taking place around Perth - see below.

101 Years of Commemoration at ANZAC Cottage

ANZAC Day has been commemorated at ANZAC Cottage since the first ANZAC Day on 25 April 1916. In 2017, 101 years later, the Friends of ANZAC Cottage will be honouring ANZAC Day with its annual Sunset Service 'at the going down of the sun', from 5:15 pm.

Prior to the Service, beginning at 3pm, the Friends hosts a free wreath making workshop for children. This activity allows children to make their own wreath which they then can lay at the flagpole during the Sunset Service.

The Cottage will be open from 3pm to 6m on ANZAC Day and visitors are encouraged to look through the Cottage and learn more about its fascinating story. Entry is free and afternoon tea will be available for a gold coin donation. For more information, please contact Anne Chapple on 0411 44 55 82 or email chapan@highway1.com.au.
