ANZAC Day is hailed as one of the most important national days of Australia. It is a commemoration of the landing of Australian and New Zealand armed forces at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915 during the Great War. ANZAC is an acronym and stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corps. ANZAC Day is celebrated with great reverence through an ANZAC DAY Dawn Service, ANZAC Day Parade and other traditional ceremonies.

The ANZAC Day Parade will follow the ANZAC Day Dawn Service at the Shrine of Remembrance on 25 April 2017. The parade will head off at 9 am from the corner of Swanston Street and Flinders Street, and will snake its way through the streets of Melbourne, down St Kilda Road and end at the Shrine of Remembrance. Veterans will lead the parade while serving personnel and descendants of veterans will follow them in quick procession.

The parade will finish at 1pm and will be followed by a Commemoration Service, to be hosted on the Shrine Forecourt.
