Each year on April 25, Australians pause to honour the sacrifice of our fellow countrymen and women who have served throughout our Nation's history.
While training in the Egyptian desert, the 1st Australian Division and the New Zealand Australian Division were re-formed into the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps – the ANZACs.
More than 2000 ADF members are deployed on operations, continuing the Anzac spirit at home and in many countries around the world.
Anzac Day is one of Australia’s most important commemorative occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought during the First World War.
