Caloundra will join communities around Australia and New Zealand this Thursday to pay respects to the brave men and women who have served and died in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations to afford us the freedoms we enjoy every day.
We owe so much to the Anzacs, whose qualities of courage, mateship, endurance and sacrifice have defined us as a nation and left such a powerful legacy.
Anzac Day is one of Australia’s most important national commemorative occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
On the 25th of April 1915, Australian and New Zealand soldiers formed part of the allied expedition that set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula. These became known as Anzacs and the pride they took in that name continues to this day.
The day of solemn remembrance will be marked in Caloundra as follows:
5.15am - Lions Park Kings Beach (BYO Chairs)
