Anzac Day

ANZAC Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, originally commemorated by both countries on 25 April every year to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I. It now more broadly commemorates all those who served and died in military operations for their countries.


ANZAC Day is the day we remember all Australians who served and died in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. The spirit of ANZAC, with its human qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity.

Timeline of Events:

- The Dawn Service will commence at the Cenotaph on the Cairns Esplanade at 5.30 am.

- The Services Parade March will step off from Fogarty Park at 7am. The parade will travel north along the Esplanade to Minnie Street.

- The Commemoration Service will begin after the arrival of the March at 8.15am at the Cenotaph, the Esplanade.

Ironman Cairns Triathlon

Cairns Airport IRONMAN Asia-Pacific Championship Cairns is situated at the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and boasts a stunning backdrop that will take your breath away.

Over it's seven year history the event has become known as the IRONMAN in Paradise, boasting an experience that extends past the race day excitement. Hosted in Tropical North Queensland athletes and their support crew have easy access to the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest and the tropical island surrounds.

With arguably the most spectacular bike course in the world, competitors race up the Captain Cook Highway hugging the coastline from Cairns to Port Douglas. From reef to World Heritage listed rainforest, and a run along the stunning Cairns boardwalk, the race finishes in the heart of the city. This race has become a ‘must-do’ on the IRONMAN circuit, and there is every reason to believe the hype

Date: Sunday 9 June 2019
