"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
Lest We Forget
ANZAC Day marks the anniversary of the first campaign that led to major casualties for Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. The acronym ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, whose soldiers were known as Anzacs. ANZAC Day remains one of the most important national occasions of both Australia and New Zealand, a rare instance of two sovereign countries not only sharing the same remembrance day, but making reference to both countries in its name.
The Downunder Pub will be open from 10 am for "Tea and coffee" and to watch the ANZAC day ceremonies on the TV and other traditional ANZAC day activities. The football will be televised, Keep an eye on This Weeks Line Up. Aussie Pies, Sausage Rolls and a sausage sizzle will be available throughout the day.
