For over 120 years Australian men and women have served around the world in defence of our country, our allies, and our values.  Australian defence personnel have served with dignity, honour and bravery. We will never forget their service and their sacrifice, and this ANZAC Day we pause to remember and to thank them.

No matter how you mark Anzac Day this year - at a Dawn service, at your own home, at your local RSL, or watching the national service on television - I encourage all Australians to pause and reflect on all those who have served, and those who continue to serve.

As a grateful nation, we do this, for what they have done and all they have given for us.

Anzac Day can be a challenging time for veterans and for the families of those who have served, so I would also encourage Australians to reach out to the veterans and their families in your community to ensure they have the support they need.”

Anyone needing support at this time should reach out to Open Arms – Veterans & Families Counselling on 1800 011 046, or visit the website at openarms.gov.au

Please consider attending a local service.
