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.

- Cairns Ecumenical Service will be held in St Monica's Cathedral commencing at 9.30am.
