Anzac Day ceremonies in the Upper Hunter

ANZAC Day is the solemn day of remembrance of those Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who fought and died at Gallipoli in 1915.

It is also a day of remembrance for all soldiers who have fought and died for their country and is recognised with a public holiday in Australia.

Upper Hunter Shire Councillors are proud to attend Anzac Day events on April 25 across the region – and encourage residents to attend and bring their family.

These events are organised by local RSL sub-branches.
