Anzac Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day on which we remember Australians who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. To find out what is happening at Gallipoli on 25 April 2015, please go to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs Gallipoli 2015 website.
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.
