ANZAC DAY in ADELAIDE

ANZAC DAY in ADELAIDE

On Tuesday 25 April 2023 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 Dawn Services, ANZAC march & Cross of Sacrifice services will be happening. Keep an eye on the RSLSA page for more info as it becomes available. Make 2023 the year we get to take our kids to a Dawn Service and 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.

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.
