Anzac Day - 25 April is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, to honour members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I. It now more broadly commemorates all those who died and served in military operations for their countries.
ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as ANZACs.
The spirit of ANZAC recognises the qualities of courage, mateship, resourcefulness, sacrifice and endurance that will never own defeat
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
