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.
