ANZAC Day is a solemn day of remembrance, gratitude and national pride. On 25 April 2015, ANZAC Day, it will be one hundred years since the dawn landing of Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers at Gallipoli during the First World War.
To commemorate this significant event, the Returned & Services League of Australia, Western Australia Branch Incorporated (RSLWA) will be hosting the Dawn Service in Kings Park and Botanic Garden.
The Dawn Service will be held from 5.50 am to 7.10 am. Larger than usual crowds are expected this ANZAC Day and we recommend visitors arrive at Kings Park from 4.00 am onwards. Travel delays may occur so plan your journey to allow plenty of time.
There will be four designated areas where you can view the service on large screens. Additional screens will be installed around the venue and extra catering stations will be available.
Security and fencing will be in place in the areas closest to the State War Memorial, which will be closed when full capacity is reached.
Road and carpark closures will occur and patrons are encouraged to use free public transport on this day.
