ANZAC Day, All over Australia
Where is it: Starting from the corner of Adelaide and George Streets in Brisbane's CBD. There are also events on all over Australia and New Zealand (and various spots throughout Europe)!
What's it all about: ANZAC Day is one of the most important commemorations for Australians and New Zealanders, and these events allow everyone to show support and join in!
How can I join in: The Brisbane event is right in the City, so get in and secure your spot along the parade route! Pretty much every town in Australia will have some sort of event on, so check in you local area to see what's on!
Tell me more: Anzac Day is a very special place for most Australians. More than just a remembrance of sacrifices made, the legend of the Anzac is also seen to be a defining moment for the Australian nation. Every year we head along to the centre of Brisbane to join in with thousands of others to show our support for the current and ex- service men and women (as well as their support, families and carers) as they march through the streets. The parade starts at 10AM and there's lots of road closures, so look to come in on public transport. It's partly a sombre day and partly a celebration, however we've always come away from every Anzac Day parade feeling proud to have shown our support for those that have put in so much more of a sacrifice. And it's so lovely to see so many little kids in the crowds so we are sure that the Anzac spirit will continue to be admired for the next generation!
