ANZAC DAY in ADELAIDE

ANZAC DAY in ADELAIDE

On Sunday 25 April 2021 communities all over Adelaide will remember and honour the brave soldiers who fought (and still fight to this day) for our country.

Due to the ever changing COVID-19 guidelines you will need to check your local RSL for their individual Dawn Service plans. There will be 2500 tickets available for the public to attend the CBD Dawn Service with a maximum of 4 tickets per purchase. Click here to check availability. The Adelaide ANZAC March in the CBD will be a private event that the public are not invited to attend as March spectators or Descendants. Group participants; only families of Marchers and veterans not marching will be permitted to attend.

Adelaide commemorative activities will be broadcast on radio and television by the ABC from 5:55am and we are again being encouraged to Light up the Dawn from our driveways. Live stream the service on radio or television and join with the rest of the country by standing 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.

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

I’ve always found the services a bit overwhelming but since having Elka I can barely bite back the tears. Just imagine losing your child to war. What horror and torment it must cause. It breaks my heart. One of the most meaningful parts of the services to me are when students and children lay wreaths and read poems. But by far, the most heart-wrenching part is the music. Whether it’s through voice or solely instrumental, I find this part deeply moving. My poppa was a Rat…
