ANZAC Day 2024

ANZAC Day has special significance in Albany. It has long been recognised that the service conducted by Padre White was the day that marked the birth of a tradition.

Albany’s RSL sub-branch with support from the City of Albany will deliver the Dawn and Commemorative Services this year, which will include the traditional Gunfire Breakfast and Troop March.

This year’s commemorations will be completely open to the public with no ticketing requirements to attend the main services.
