REGISTRATIONS OPEN FOR 2024 ANZAC DAY SERVICES OVERSEAS

So many Australians have a connection with the Anzac legend – a family story of a son lost, or a local hero who never returned home.

109 years since the Allied landings on the Gallipoli peninsula, Anzac Day remains core to our national identity.

In Australia, New Zealand, and indeed across the globe, as the dawn breaks on Anzac Day, we come together, solemnly, silently, and respectfully.

We gather to remember the sacrifices of so many ordinary Australians, caught up in extraordinary events throughout our history.

Australians are now invited to register their attendance at the 2024 Anzac Day Dawn Services in France and Türkiye to commemorate our Anzacs, and all those who have served our nation in conflict and peacekeeping operations in the years since.

The Gallipoli Anzac Day Dawn Service will take place at the Anzac Commemorative Site on the Gallipoli peninsula. This will be followed by the Australian Memorial service at   Lone Pine, the site of one of the fiercest battles that the Australians fought during the   First World War.

The Dawn Service in France will be hosted at the Australian National Memorial near Villers-Bretonneux, followed by a service at the Digger Memorial, just outside the town of Bullecourt.

Those planning to attend these overseas Dawn Services can now register for their free attendance passes online at https://commemorations.teg.com.au/. Registration is essential.

Australian travellers are encouraged to monitor smartraveller.gov.au for the latest travel advice.
