“Thank you for the opportunity to speak today.

Why do we commemorate Anzac Day? This question was posed recently by my daughter’s American partner. They live in New York City. In the US, they have two commemorative days: Veterans Day on the 11th of November and Memorial Day, held on the last Monday in May. The latter honours military personnel who have died in the service of their country.                              Read More ... 

Its fair to say that we were a little surprised by the increased turnouts for both the Dawn Service and the Main Service in 2024. In fact estimates were made more difficult as there were a number of people who viewed both services from John Turnbull Park.                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Read More ...

phoca thumb s working_bee_21 jan 2024_ex_mcgee_6 A working bee organised by Mark Jones, Graeme Hawes and Peter Dane took place in and around the carpark. on Sunday 21 st January 2024. The main purpose was to clean up
the dead and dying bushes around the Cenotaph lawns.

19 volunteers turned up many of whom not only supplied their own gear but also provided their ute and/or trailer to ensure the green waste was taken to the tip. Graeme Hawes has since commenced replanting some schrubs supplied by Westland Nurseries which should ensure that the area is in good condition for Anzac Day.

phoca thumb s anzac day 2023 hon josh willie mlc ex peter daneAustralians are well versed in the ANZAC story, as demonstrated by your presence here today. Thank you for coming to remember the courage of those who have served. Before dawn on the 25th April 1915, the brave souls of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps landed on a foreign soil on the shores of the Gallipoli peninsular.

The men were part of a British and French led invasion. The Allies mission was to destroy Turkish guns that were preventing naval ships from reaching and bombarding the Turkish capital, Constantinople. If they succeeded, Türkiye might be forced out of the war and Germany would lose an important ally.
