Welcome to the ANZAC Day Commemoration Committee

ABN #: 46 457 412 054

ANZAC was the name given to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey early on the morning of 25 April 1915 during the First World War (1914-1918).

As a result, one day in the year has involved the whole of Australia in solemn ceremonies of remembrance, gratitude and national pride for all our men and women who have fought and died in all wars. That day is ANZAC Day - 25 April.

Every nation must, sooner or later, come for the first time to a supreme test of quality; and the result of that test will hearten or dishearten those who come afterwards. For the fledgling nation of Australia that first supreme test was at Gallipoli.

This site includes a host of educational and historical information on ANZAC Day, the Spirit of ANZAC, and all conflicts in which Australian forces have served. The site will be regularly updated and improved as resources permit.
