On 24th April 2015, in a series of major locations around Australia, thousands of Australians will gather for the first time for the ultimate ANZAC experience, otherwise only possible at ANZAC Cove in Turkey, for a special evening filled with emotion, education and entertainment at one of the most significant times in our history.
From the afternoon of 24th April through to the dawn service on ANZAC Day 2015, families, students and community groups will experience an event filled with memorable and uplifting moments of remembrance, entertainment and mateship, developed to commemorate the centenary of the 25th April 1915 landing at ANZAC Cove.
Numerous locations across Australia will have areas set aside for camping using swags, just as the Diggers experienced. The over night experience will be filled with live entertainment from some of Australia’s leading artists and well-known guests. Movies and documentaries will be shown on the big screen, and delicious food reminiscent of the era will be served, followed by a memorable and moving Dawn Service on ANZAC Day itself.
