All Tasmanians are invited to commemorate ANZAC day this 25 April and give thanks for the service and sacrifice of those who have served our country.
While we are faced with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Tasmanian Government has been to ensure that all Tasmanians have the opportunity to pay their respects and participate in a special commemorative service from their homes.
This year, you can commemorate the day in different ways:
- 5.30am Australian War Memorial Commemorative Service on ABC TV, ABC Radio, Facebook and iview
This year, the Australian War Memorial in Canberra will hold a private, nationally televised Anzac Day commemorative service. The traditional Dawn Service, National Ceremony and veterans’ march will not take place. For more information on broadcast and streaming services and start times, please visit www.awm.gov.au.
- 6am Light up the Dawn
Across the nation, Australians are being invited to honour the service of our Defence Forces, past and present, by standing at their front door or on their balcony at 6am and observing a minute’s silence.
- 11.30am RSL Tasmania Commemorative Service ABC Radio
In a special event, RSL Tasmania will hold a private service. The event will not be open to the public but you can join in the live broadcast via ABC’s Facebook page and local radio.
