Anzac Day 2019

Thursday 25 April 2019

History & Heritage

ANZAC Day in Adelaide includes the following events:

State RSL ANZAC Eve Youth Vigil

The State RSL ANZAC Eve Youth Vigil at the South Australian National War Memorial commences at 6pm on Wednesday 24 April and is maintained overnight until the Dawn Service. Representatives from 10 youth groups conduct a 12 hour vigil that concludes just prior to the Dawn Service.

Dawn Service

The Adelaide Dawn Service is held at the South Australian National War Memorial on the corner of Kintore Avenue and North Terrace and begins at 6.00 am.

ANZAC Day March

The ANZAC Day March traditionally commences at 9:30 am from North Terrace, Adelaide, from the SA National War Memorial, and turns right onto King William Road. The march concludes at the Cross of Sacrifice in Pennington Gardens, North Adelaide.  Spectators are invited to line both North Terrace and King William Road (between North Terrace and the Adelaide Bridge).  ABC Television will also provide a live telecast of the March

Cross of Sacrifice Service

A Remembrance Service is held at the Cross of Sacrifice in Pennington Gardens, North Adelaide, from approximately 11:30 am, immediately after the ANZAC Day March concludes.   

This service provides a significant finale to the commemorations, with the Dawn Service representing a funeral, the March representing the walk to the grave site and the service at the Cross of Sacrifice representing the burial.

ANZAC at Torrens Parade Ground

After the March visitors, veterans, family and the public are welcome back at the Torrens Parade Ground to meet up with mates and enjoy food and refreshments. Volunteers from ex-service organisations and ADF units will sell drinks and food to raise funds for their groups. Your support is welcome. Please include time at Torrens Parade Ground. 

A massed pipe band will play when the Cross of Sacrifice service finishes and there will be Two Up around lunchtime along with displays of militaria.

Union Hotel Street Party

The Union Hotel on Waymouth Street is keeping up its tradition with the annual ANZAC Day Street Party starting at 10 am, with music and entertainment throughout the day.
