ANZAC Day in Australia. ANZAC is an acronym and stands for Australian & New Zealand Army Corps. Anzac Day is the anniversary of the landing of troops from Australia & New Zealand on the Gallipoli Peninsula, Turkey, in World War I on April 25, 1915.

Anzac Day is a unique and special day that brings the community together to remember and recognise the service and sacrifice of members of the Australian Defence Force.

At the rising of the sun, The Shrine of Remembrance on St Kilda Road in Melbourne hosts a 6am Dawn Service. Everyone is welcome and it is recommended to arrive between 4 – 5am to be part of this special commemoration. It is a day of gratitude and reflection and resonates to the present day. One minute of silence will be observed. The Anzac Day March commences at 9am from Flinders & Swanston Streets where thousands of veterans and their descendants and current servicing personnel march down St Kilda Road. Additional trams will operate from 3.54am to enable you to get to the Shrine of Remembrance on time.

The MCG hosts an annual football match between Collingwood and Essendon which is sometimes referred to as The Anzac Day Clash. It starts at 3.20pm. You can catch a water taxi to the football at MCG from North Wharf or go by tram.
