Anzac Day commemorative package


We commemorate Anzac Day on 25 April. 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 some 103,000 Australians who lost their lives while serving.

We posted a commemorative pack of these resources to schools, ex-service organisations and other associations across Australia. You can print the posters and explore the content online.

Legacy 100th anniversary


Legacy is an iconic Australian organisation. It supports families of veterans who have lost their lives or been seriously injured in war, peacekeeping operations or training.

In 1923, a group of World War I veterans set out to help the widows and children of some 60,000 Australian service personnel who died. In 1923, Major General Sir John Gellibrand formed the Remembrance Club in Hobart. Another returning soldier, Lieutenant General Sir Stanley Savige, was inspired to establish a similar club in Melbourne named Legacy.

With the help of dedicated volunteers, known as Legatees, Legacy provides support through its local clubs. Today it supports around 40,000 widows, children and dependants across Australia.
