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.

The Starts at 60 writers team seek out interesting topics and write them especially for you.

  1. Blatant grab for the dollar, disgusting to imagine that people would feel what those soldiers felt.

  2. I think the diggers would be happy to know that 100 yrs on people still cared enough to organise something like this to show respect for what they did for us.

  3. If you stop and think about the people who follow this site…these were the generations that lived in the years between and following the two World Wars. …showing their respect by camping in swags under the stars is a fitting tribute to the centenary of the ANZAC
    legacy…especially if you’re not fortunate to be among those
    going to Gallipoli.

  4. If you had read the article fully you would see it is a non- profit organisation and all proceeds go to the wonderful work done by the RSL and Legacy In looking after the families of our soldiers.
