This Anzac Day we’ll come together, in person and in spirit, to commemorate the men and women who have served our nation in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.

However you choose to mark the day, we are here with ideas to help you make the most of it.

Stay local and attend an Anzac Day service in your community

Upload your photos to Places of Pride

This year, some local communities are able to hold commemorative services on Anzac Day. If you are able to attend, take photos of your local memorial or cenotaph and add them to Places of Pride, the National Register of War Memorials.

Place a virtual poppy this Anzac Day

Visit the virtual poppy wall to leave your message

Visitors to the Australian War Memorial often place a poppy on the Roll of Honour in the Commemorative Area, in remembrance of the 102,000 Australians who died as a result of war and operations.

We have created a virtual poppy wall so you can leave a personalised message of remembrance online, no matter where you're commemorating this Anzac Day.
