Anzac Day is one of Australia’s most important national commemorative occasions. Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. The meaning of Anzac Day today includes the remembrance of all Australians killed in military operations.

On 25 April each year, the Australian and New Zealand Embassies conduct a traditional dawn service followed by a breakfast to commemorate Anzac Day.
