ANZAC Day - Remembering our war dead

ANZAC Day formally remembers the landing of the troops of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps at Gallipolli in Turkey during World War I.

Over 8,000 Australian and 2,700 New Zealand soldiers died in a campaign that failed in its objective of taking Turkey out of the war. It is Australia's most significant national day, on which we remember the sacrifice of those who have served, and especially those who have died in war and other military operations on behalf of our country.

Lest we forget.
