This year’s ANZAC Day marks the 100th anniversary of the World War I Armistice signed in November 1918. It also marks the 102nd ANZAC Day Parade to recognise those that have and still continue to serve our country.
The Dawn Service at Brisbane’s Shrine of Remembrance, ANZAC Square, will start at 4.28am. It will be followed by the Parade from 10am-1pm. All Veterans and their families are encouraged to march and should contact their Ex-Service organisation in advance.
