Wollongong City Council and Wollongong RSL Sub Branch have joined together to bring us two events for Anzac Day 2023.

The first is a Dawn Service to commemorate the first major military campaign by Australia and New Zealand in World War 1 and to honour those who served. This will take place at the Cenotaph, which is located at the North East corner of McCabe Park facing Church Street. The Service will start at 5 am and the RSL requests that everyone is there by 4.45 am ready for the Service.

If you are getting the kids up early for the service, there is a small play park located just to the North of the Cenotaph in McCabe Park where they can run off some steam, after standing quietly for the Service. There is lots of grassy space in the park itself to run and picnic. However, keep the kids within sight in this park as there can be a few interesting characters around.

The second event is an Anzac Day March. The Marchers will gather in the Crown Street Mall facing Kembla Street i.e. looking towards the beach end of town. They will march towards Kembla street and turn right onto it. Then right on to Burelli Street, left on to Church street. They will pass the Cenotaph located in McCabe Park and then disperse.

With vintage cars, Australian Defence Force Personnel, Veterans Groups, Community Organisations and Local Bands all marching, this is going to be a fantastic event and one for the kids and adults to remember. All are welcome to come along and line the route to show their support for those who keep us safe.
