Overseas Commemorations Attendee Registration System
On Anzac Day we come together in person and in spirit, to commemorate the men and women who have served our nation in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.
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.
Gallipoli campaign, 1915
Though the Gallipoli campaign failed to achieve its military objectives of knocking the Ottoman Empire out of the war, the actions of the Australian and New Zealand troops during the campaign bequeathed an intangible but powerful legacy. The creation of what became known as an "Anzac legend" became an important part of the national identity in both countries.
the Western Front 1916 to 1918
After the Gallipoli Campaign, Australian soldiers and airmen fought in each of the major British campaigns on the Western Front. Many battles became household names in Australia: Fromelles, the Somme, Bullecourt, Messines, Passchendaele, Villers-Bretonneux, Hamel, Amiens and Mont St Quentin.
Commemorating all who served then and now
You can register to attend an Anzac Day commemoration at the Anzac Commemorative Site in Gallipoli, Turkey or at the Australian National Memorial in Villers-Bretonneux, France.
