The Centenary of ANZAC 2014-2018 signifies an important period in Australia and New Zealand’s history. It’s been 101 years since our ANZAC troops made history at Gallipol, Turkey during the First World War. This national holiday pays homage to the original ANZACs and their families, plus the unwavering spirit demonstrated by our fellow men and women who fought to defend the values of the country.
To pay tribute to this moment in national history, there will be various events and exhibitions that aim to educate today’s generation about our heroes. On April 25, 2016, Currumbin RSL will host the ANZAC Day Dawn Service will be held at Elephant Rock, Currumbin. The event will commence at 3:30 AM; the parade assembly at Murraba Street, Currumbin Beach will start at 4:20 AM. The Dawn Service commences at Elephant Rock, Currumbin Beach at 5:00 AM.
You can also be part of other relevant events and fundraising activities, such as the Outdoor Photographic Exhibition along the foreshores of Currumbin with the ‘Camera on Gallipoli’ from the Australian War Memorial; the Symbolic Sleep Out at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, a symbolic gesture to the significance of Gallipoli; Australia Remembers through Film, which will feature stories shared by Veterans and their families; among others.
