Dawn Service



They gave their all. Let you who pass, pause and remember their names,


and see that no slur, nor stain, nor shame falls on the lands for which they gave their lives


 Australia and New Zealand.



Dawn Service

ANZAC Day traditionally begins with the Dawn Service at the Cultural Centre, a reminder of the dawn landing on Gallipoli in 1915. The call of the kookaburras in the early morning chill gives a distinctive Aussie touch to this special day of remembrance.
