Anzac Day commemorative package


On 25 April we commemorate Anzac Day. This date is the anniversary of the day Australian and New Zealand soldiers landed on the beaches of Gallipoli in 1915 as part of the Allies' invasion. We recognise more than 1.5 million men and women who have served Australia in all conflicts, wars and peacekeeping operations. It's also a time to remember over 103,000 Australians who lost their lives while serving.

We have posted a commemorative pack of resources to schools, ex-service organisations and other associations across Australia. We encourage you to display the posters and explore our other content.

This new book complements our primary and secondary teaching resource, Indigenous Service.
