On April 25 every year, Anzac Day is marked with a public holiday. It is a day when people remember all the men and women who have served in the armed forces. Anzac Day also reminds us of our hope for the people of the world to live in peace. Australians celebrate or commemorate a number of special days throughout the year.
These special days give us the chance to reflect on the past, appreciate our lives, and look to the future together.
