ANZAC Day 2017 GUNFIRE BREAKFAST

If you are planning to attend the ANZAC Dawn Service this year then you might be interested in coming along to the Gunfire Breakfast afterwards to get a bite to eat. It will be held on the 25th of April from 7am to 9am in Stirling Gardens on St George's Terrace adjacent to Council House.

A Gunfire Breakfast is an ANZAC Day tradition in Australia and New Zealand. It involves serving black coffee instead of tea to soldiers after the conclusion of dawn services. Its origins go back to the British Army. "Gunfire" is the name of a British cocktail made from black tea and rum and is also used as a term to describe early morning tea in the army.

The Dawn Service is scheduled to finish at 7am. If you would like to attend both it is recommended that you consult Transperth for public transport timetables. The Dawn Service is being held in Kings Park. If you were to walk from there to Stirling Gardens it would take you 30 minutes. A bus would take from between 15 to 20 minutes and it will take 10 minutes via car. All City of Perth open-air carparks near Stirling Gardens will be open on ANZAC Day.

The Gunfire Breakfast can cater for up to 2,000 people and is proudly supported by the Rotary Club of Heirisson. The breakfast is a great chance for acting service personnel and ex-service personnel and the community to get together and celebrate the spirit of ANZAC day. All it takes to join in is a gold coin donation.
