The 2020 ANZAC Day Dawn Service in Kings Park has been cancelled. Please contact RSLWA for more information.


The Returned & Services League of Australia, Western Australia Branch Incorporated (RSLWA) hold an annual Dawn Service at the State War Memorial in Kings Park and Botanic Garden.

ANZAC was the term given to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula early on the morning of 25 April 1915 during the First World War. Anzac Day is a solemn day of remembrance, gratitude and national pride.

Every year on 25 April, cities and towns around Australia hold commemorative events to pay respect to the men and women who have served and continue to serve our great nation.
