ANZAC DAY in ADELAIDE

ANZAC Day in Adelaide

On Monday 25 April 2022 communities all over Adelaide will remember and honour the brave soldiers who fought (and still fight to this day) for our country.

The RSL South Australia are anticipating a return to regular Dawn Services this year after two years of COVID disruptions – absolutely fantastic news! This should hopefully include the Dawn Services, march & Cross of Sacrifice service. Keep an eye on the RSLSA page for more info as it becomes available, but it sounds like 2022 could be the year we get to take our kids to a Dawn Service again & further teach them the importance of this day.

A particular favourite for the Kids in Adelaide team is the ANZAC Day service at the Light Horse Memorial in the CBD East parklands. Starting at a family friendly time of 8am, easy nearby parking, a short and sharp service, and with a team of horses on site (that the kids can feed/pat after the service!) this one can’t be beaten – more details on this service here.

If you are stuck in isolation or can’t get to a Dawn Service, you are encouraged to stand at the end of your driveway (or on a balcony on in the living room) at 6am with a candle to honour all who have served us. Click here for all the information on how to participate in Light Up the Dawn.

Adelaide commemorative activities will be broadcast on radio and television by the ABC from 5:55am. Live stream the service on radio or television.

Keep your eye on the RSLSA page for most up to date information as changes are being made regularly in line with COVID regulations. Closer to the event you will also be able to access live streaming options.

There are some great family friendly ANZAC Day events across Adelaide that you can take the kids to, such as the ANZAC Day Overnight Vigil Opening Ceremony. Have a look below for some great event ideas to head along to, or other ways to commemorate ANZAC Day such as craft ideas or baking ANZAC biscuits.

What Does ANZAC Day Mean to ME

I’ve only been to a handful of ANZAC Day services. We usually go to the service at Brighton, but have also been to one at Victor Harbor. Both were especially moving, in part because of the sound of the waves breaking, reminding the crowd gathered of what memories the…
