This Anzac Day, Australians from all walks of life will come together to commemorate the Centenary of Anzac, marking one hundred years since the landing of the ANZACs on the shores of Gallipoli.
The importance of this anniversary cannot be understated. The Gallipoli campaign and the First World War shaped who we are as a nation. It cost us dearly, but the bravery and selflessness of the ANZACs will never be forgotten.
I ask you to pay your respects to the legacy of the ANZACs, as well as the servicemen and servicewoman who have followed in their footsteps in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations over a century of service. I also encourage you to participate in an Anzac dawn service, march or ceremony this Anzac Day.
I look forward to paying my respects with you at local services across Bonner this coming Anzac Day.
