***Traditional ANZAC Day commemoration services have been cancelled with the announcement of the three-night COVID-19 lockdown for Perth and Peel.

For those commemorating ANZAC Day from their driveways, balconies and farm gates again this year, you can hear The Ode, The Last Post, the Minute’s Silence and Rouse on all three stations from 6am (tune in from 5.50am). ABC Perth (via 720 AM) will also air a special ANZAC Day interview with Air Commodore Fiona Dowse AM CSC, WA’s most senior military officer, to coincide with her Kings Park Dawn Service address.***

 

Here is a list of commemorative services happening in the City of Perth and surrounding suburbs on Sunday 25th April 2021.

Kings Park Dawn Service

The first commemorative event of Anzac Day is the Annual Dawn Service at 6 am. Hosted by The Returned and Services League of Australia, Western Australia (RSLWA), the service will be held at the State War Memorial in Kings Park. Perth’s Dawn Service 2021 has been restricted to 10,000 people and online registration will be required in advance of the event. Online registration is free and can be made through the RSLWA website before Anzac Day. Register here.  

Alternatively, commemorate our Anzacs on your home driveways, balconies or living rooms with candles, flowers and light. RSLWA encourages residents to gather at 5.50 am AWST and join the nation in the Light Up the Dawn services. Following the tremendous success of the driveaway services last year and because of the reduced numbers that can attend the Kings Park Dawn Service, the Light Up the Dawn service is an opportunity to let Australian veteran communities know that their service and sacrifice is not forgotten.

Gunfire Breakfast

For a gold coin donation, the community is invited to share the Spirit of Anzac Day with the Gunfire Breakfast organised by the Rotary Club of Perth. The Gunfire Breakfast will be arranged at the Government House Gardens on 13 St Georges Terrace, Perth, between 7 am to 9 am.
