ANZAC Day – 25 April 2020
Australians are being encouraged to honour the service and sacrifice of our veterans and serving Defence personnel on ANZAC Day from home this year by watching the nationally broadcast Dawn Service from the Australian War Memorial and participating in the RSL’s #LightUpTheDawn campaign.
The RSL’s #LightUpTheDawn campaign asks Australians to stand in their driveway, balcony or living room, with a torch or candle, immediately following in the televised dawn service, to remember all those who have served and sacrificed.
The coverage of the commemorative service will take place at the Australian War Memorial on Anzac Day, 25 April 2020, with the ABC starting pre-service coverage from 5am AEST, with the service broadcast live from 5.30am AEST.
ANZAC Day ideas for the kids
The Australian War Memorial has also released resources to come together in remembrance in spirit, instead of in person including, remembering with kids, remembering with mates and remembering with veterans.
