A-Z List of Anzac Day Dawn Services 2019

Home > Brisbane > ANZAC Day | Community Events
Published April 9th 2019
On 25 April 1915, ANZAC soldiers approached Gallipoli Beach in the early hours of the morning. The following year, dawn services in commemoration of the fallen ANZACs began to take place all over Australia. The first official Dawn Service was held at Sydney's Cenotaph in 1928, and has become one of Australia's most honoured traditions since then.
