The Bendigo District RSL Sub-Branch invites you to join us in commemorating Anzac Day.
Anzac Day is one of Australia’s most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. On this day, and every day, we acknowledge and remember all those who are currently serving or have served in the Armed Forces in Australia, New Zealand, and our partners who have stood side by side for over 100 years.
We ask that you arrive early in line with the timing below, to ensure a smooth running of the events.
All community members wishing to attend the Anzac Day services, please note that the area reserved for the service is for veterans and invited guests only, we kindly ask that all community members remain outside the fenced barrier.
