Event:
A very special ANZAC Day
ANZAC Day, the 25th of April, is probably Australia's most important national day.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the ANZACs - the time when Australian and New Zealand military forces fought together in the First World War.

On this very special 100th Anniversary, Australians will flock to memorial services to pay tribute to those who served and sacrificed.

The day, in 2 parts will become one of the biggest ANZAC days in 100 years.

The 25th of April starts with a Dawn Service to commemorate the time of the original landing of troops at Gallipoli.

At 9.30am the ANZAC Day March begins from the SA National War Memorial, moves along North Terrace to King William Road and ends at the Cross of Sacrifice in Pennington Gardens.
