Anzac Day was first observed by both Australia and New Zealand on April 25 1916, in remembrance of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought together at Gallipoli during WW1. Today, ANZAC Day commemorates Australians and New Zealanders who died and served in all military operations. Anzac Day is also observed in Samoa, Tonga, Cook Islands and Niue.
The Centenary of the Gallipoli landing (1915) was on April 25, 2015. Between 2014 and 2018 Australia will commemorate the ANZAC Centenary, focusing on the 100 years since our nation’s involvement in WW1 – The First World War 1914 – 1918.
