ANZAC Day commemorates the anniversary of the arrival of Australian and New Zealand soldiers on Gallipoli on April 25, 1915. This year, the celebrations, time of reflection and the way we honour the troops who lost their lives after months of battle are back to normal. Here’s what to do this ANZAC Day in Perth.
Do the Dawn Service differently
Unfortunately due to the current COVID-19 climate still ongoing in Perth, the traditional Kings Park Dawn Service will not have any public participation in 2022.
RSLWA is instead encouraging people to stand on their driveways with a lit candle from 5:55am – 6.30am to honour those who have served us. The small invite-only Kings Park Dawn Service will be broadcasted live through Radio 94.5 and the Triple M Radio Network.
Watch the ANZAC Day Parade
The Perth CBD Parade will still go ahead this year with level 1 COVID-19 restrictions, and will kick off from 9am. The Australian Defence Force will start on the corner of Barrack Street and St Georges Terrace, joined by vintage vehicles and military jeeps. The parade will then finish up at Langley Park.
You can check out the parade map here.
The Parade is also set to be livestreamed on ABC TV.
