Cities, towns, shires and councils around Australia on Anzac Day held services and ceremonies at local war memorials to remember the sacrifices made by the community, and to mourn those who did not return.

Places of Pride, the National Register of War Memorials, received more than 80 new memorials and 450 photos during this time, which are now displayed on the pages created for local war memorials across Australia on the register. 

The photos we continue to collect of local war memorials are displayed proudly on the website and will one day be displayed on a large digital display in the halls of the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.

With your help we were able to spread the powerful message of how important Anzac Day is to local communities. Below are just some of the social media posts from Anzac Day across Australia.
