Each year at 6pm on the evening before ANZAC Day, the War Memorial Victoria Park RSL hosts a large gathering, including dignitaries, veterans and families, to commemorate ANZAC Day. Local cadet groups participate in the Catafalque party.
We also engage with local schools on ANZAC Day itself, teaching about the history of the ANZAC legend.
When: Friday 24th April 2015, 5.45 – 8pm
