On behalf of veterans and charities across the country we invite you commemorate Anzac Day in your own special way. You can stand in your homes, driveways and balconies at 6am on Anzac Day and join home-based national dawn services, sleep-out on Anzac Day eve, or take an Anzac Day walk. Whatever you do, do it to share respect for all who serve and make this Anzac Day one to remember. It’s in your hands now.

Get ready for Anzac Day and Share your Day

Below are some things to do to make sure you’re ready for Anzac Day. And don’t forget, whatever you do share it using #diggerstribute #anzacathome #intheirhonour

Colour-In Poppies

Download and colour in poppies – hang one on your front door; stick one on your letter box or colour in lots and plant them in your garden.

Great Teddy Bear Hunt

Great Teddy Bear Walk Hunt – Put your teddy bear in the window or get your kids to colour a military bear and stick it in your window

Anzac Day Events

A number of veteran charities are supporting activities to help Australians keep the Anzac Spirit alive.
Follow the links to find out more about each and how you can be involved.

RSL Light Up The Dawn

At 6am on ANZAC Day, go to the end of your driveway or stand on your balcony and listen to a brief commemorative service. Together – even while apart – we’ll remember those who served and sacrificed. You can sign the pledge to light up the dawn at rslanzacspirit.com.au.

Anzac Day March – two-by-two

Take your walk on Saturday and wear a poppy or your medals. Keep your social distance but let’s be social. Thanking a veteran who is out for a walk is also a nice thing to do.


Gunfire Breakfast

After your dawn service share a gunfire breakfast with your housemates (maybe not the kids!). It’s a tradition where we toast the fallen with a hot drink with a tot of rum. The traditional breakfast includes:

Rum for your coffee and/or tea to toast the fallen

Bacon, eggs, sausages or your preferred diet


No clubs or pubs to catch up in this year, but we all have phones and many of us have zoom catch ups planned – raise a glass while you play remote two-up and remember with gratitude. If you need to make a two-up kip, try an old ruler and get a couple of 20 cent pieces.
