Overview

Townsville City Council presents official Anzac Day Commemorations in partnership with the Townsville RSL and Thuringowa RSL Sub-Branches.

Anzac Day is observed nationally as a solemn day of remembrance held on the anniversary of the landing of the First Australian Imperial Force and New Zealand Army troops, at Gallipoli in 1915.
