ANZAC DAY – DAWN SERVICE
Anzac Day is one of Australia’s most important national commemorative occasions. It marks the anniversary of the start of the first major military campaign fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. Anzac Day commemorative events have been held on 25 April each year since 1916; they provide opportunities for our community to honour all who have served our nation, and other nations, in peacetime and in conflicts, and particularly those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
In 2023 the City of Wollongong RSL sub-Branch is conducting a Dawn Service and the Wollongong City Anzac Day March, as the designated Event Organiser; in partnership with Wollongong City Council.
Most of the RSL sub-Branches in the Illawarra region conduct Dawn Services on/around Anzac Day. The City of Wollongong RSL sub-Branch Dawn Service will be held at the Wollongong Cenotaph, at the north-east corner of MacCabe Park, Church Street Wollongong, commencing at 5.00 am (sharp). Members of the public and media representatives are welcome to attend. Please be in place by 4.50 am.
The ANZAC DAY MARCH commences at 10.00am
