Anzac Day is probably Australia’s most important national occasion. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
Australians recognise 25 April as an occasion of national commemoration. Commemorative services are held at dawn, the time of the original landing, across the nation, and commemorative ceremonies are held at war memorials around the country. It is a day when Australians reflect on the many different meanings of war.
