ANZAC Day is a significant national occasion in Australia and New Zealand.

It commemorates the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during World War I.

On April 25, 1915, soldiers, known as ANZACS, formed part of an Allied expedition that aimed to capture the Gallipoli Peninsula.

The objective was to open the way to the Black Sea for the Allied navies and ultimately capture Constantinople, the capital of the Ottoman Empire.

However, what was initially planned as a bold strike turned into a stalemate, and the campaign dragged on for eight months.

Anzac Day serves as a day of remembrance for all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.

As well as recognizing the contribution and suffering of those who have served and remembering their families. Its a day where we also remember military personnel from all sides.

The pride associated with the name “Anzac” continues to this day, making Anzac Day a deeply meaningful and respected occasion.
