ANZAC Day commemorates the first landing of troops from Australia and New Zealand on the Gallipoli Peninsula, Turkey, in World War I. Traditionally ANZAC Day Parades were a commemoration of the sacrifice of WWI veterans and then WWII veterans, in keeping with the changing focus of ANZAC Day nationally, it is today a commemoration of the sacrifices of those who have ‘defended’ our Australian way of life in all conflicts and military commitments by Australian Forces since WWI.
The services are significant commemorative events and provide a colourful opportunity for members of the public to pay their respects to those who have served and continue to serve in the defence of Australia or its interests.
The services located closes to our properties are as follows:
ULTIQA Rothbury Hotel is located only 100 meters from ANZAC Square and will be in the centre of all the Remembrance Services.
