Remembrance Day marks the anniversary of the end of the First World War (1914–18). Each year Australians observe one minute's silence at 11.00 am on 11 November in memory of those who died or suffered in wars and armed conflicts.

The annual Remembrance Day Service will be conducted in the State War Memorial precinct in Kings Park and Botanic Garden. This event commemorates the end of the first modern world conflict that occurred on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918.

20,000 knitted poppies will be on display on the steps of the State War Memorial leading to the Cenotaph as well as another 20,000 planted around the Flame of Remembrance. These poppies are a portion of the 62,000 poppies that were on display during the centenary in 2018.

Please be advised that Kings Park will be very busy on this date. A small portion of Wadjuk Carpark (Kings Park’s main carpark) will be closed from 5.30 am to 1.00 pm and there will be road closures at Fraser’s Circle. Please refer to the notices section for more information.
