Pay respects to ANZAC veterans and current serving personnel from home

Join thousands of veterans, their descendants, and current serving personnel to pay respect to the ANZACs at the Shrine of Remembrance on ANZAC Day. 

The Dawn Service is a tradition that came out of the military practice of 'standing to' at dawn, a time when troops are vulnerable to attacks. Each year, the event draws thousands to the Shrine of Remembrance while millions more around the world follow the ceremony on television and radio. 

However, because we're not living in normal times, the number of people allowed at the Dawn Service at the Shrine is limited to 8,000. Currently, all tickets to attend the service have been allocated, but you can email the Shrine to be put on a waitlist.

For everyone else, there will be a live stream of the event from 5.40am on the Shrine's website or on social channels. The Dawn Service livestream will still take viewers into the heart of the Shrine of Remembrance for the traditional service. 

You can also commemorate from home by donating to the ANZAC Appeal to support the veteran community.
