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.
