Anzac Day, 25 April, is one of Australia's and New Zealand's most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) landing on the beaches of Gallipoli in 1915 as part of the Allies’ invasion, the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
Anzac Day is a day of national remembrance for Australians and New Zealanders. We remember and reflect on the service of our more than 1.5 million men and women in all conflicts, wars and in peacekeeping operations. We honour those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that our nations may enjoy the freedoms they have today. And we pay our respects to those who continue to serve our nations today.
The Anzac Portal features information on some of the campaign’s most important aspects and significant themes.
The Australian War Memorial provides information about services and commemorations, customs and traditions and has a special Anzac At Home section for those who are unable to join a commemoration in person.
