#AnzacAtHome

Anzac Day is the day all Australians come together in remembrance. But this year we’ll have to come together in spirit, instead of in person. We can all still keep the Anzac spirit alive and honour our veterans and service members from the safety of our own homes.
Here are some activities you and your family can get involved in this Anzac Day.

WATCH THE CEREMONY

National Commemorative Service
Saturday 25 April 2020
5.30 am

For the first time in its history, the Dawn Service will not be attended by members of the public. Instead you can stream the Ceremony from your home.

ANZAC AT HOME

As we commemorate #AnzacAtHome this year there are many ways you can be involved.
We have activities for remembering with kids, mates and veterans.

PLACE A VIRTUAL POPPY

Explore our interactive poppy field and leave messages of thanks for those who have served.

SHOW YOUR MEDALS

This year, in lieu of a veterans march we are asking you to share photos of the  medals you wear on Anzac Day to create a virtual collection of medals. Share your picture to social media using #ShowYourMedals.

RECORD THE ODE

Show your appreciate for our veterans and service members this Anzac Day by becoming part of the #ForTheFallen online tribute.
Simply record a short video of you or a family member reciting The Ode and upload it to social media with the hashtag #ForTheFallen.

KIDS ACTIVITIES

From arts and crafts to cooking and educational resources there are plenty of ways you can commemorate Anzac Day and create lasting memories for the whole family.

PLACES OF PRIDE

There are thousands of memorials across the country that stand as a reminder of the service and sacrifice Australians have made for us. While we can’t visit them in person this Anzac Day, you can visit them online via the Places of Pride website.  The website will feature a live stream at dawn of memorials across a number of Australian capital cities.
If you have a photo of your local memorial upload it to placesofpride.awm.gov.au to help us build the national register.

ANZAC DAY COOKING

From the famous biscuits to the gunfire breakfast and bully beef, we asked chef and restaurateur Matt Moran for his take on some traditional Anzac Day dishes.

SHARE YOUR ANZAC DAY WITH US

Upload a photo or video to social media with the hashtag #AnzacAtHome and encourage others to do the same.
