Where to play two-up
The Caulfield RSL is planning a family-friendly day of activities for ANZAC Day beginning with the ANZAC march and service at 6.45am. A gunfire brekky in the rear carpark will follow with kids activities including face painting and a magic show beginning at noon. Melbourne's largest local game of two-up will commence in the rear carpark at noon, with live music with Charlie and Fi kicking off at 2pm. Then punters can gear up to watch the Collingwood and Essendon game in the dining room from 3.20pm.
This huge pub draws a big crowd every ANZAC Day, including a lot of folk in uniform arriving after the march to the Shrine of Remembrance. Breakfast is available from 7am and there'll be two-up games from noon.
This RSL, one of the oldest in Australia, is always bustling on ANZAC Day. Open from 10, you can ease your way through the throng for cheap beer, a meal and a few dozen rounds of two-up games from 3pm.
Young & Jackson's prime Flinders St location makes it the obvious meeting point for march-goers on April 25. Open from 6am, the two-up ring will be in operation from 10am in Chloe's Bar and there's live music going on into the night.
