In stark contrast to last year, Anzac Day 2021 will see thousands of people able to attend the dawn service and national ceremony at the Australian War Memorial on Sunday, April 25. This year marks the 106th anniversary of the landings at Gallipoli.
Following COVID-19 safety measures, the memorial has worked closely with ACT Health since late last year to guarantee the safe implementation of Anzac Day commemorations. In line with current government advice, the dawn service and national ceremony will be ticketed, with a maximum of 4200 and 3000 people allowed at each respectively. Both commemorations will be held on the parade ground of the memorial. The site will be enclosed by fencing for ticket holder access to ensure the safety of those attending, and the ceremonies will be broadcast live across Australia by the ABC and online at www.awm.gov.au
Director Matt Anderson said the memorial has been working closely with the relevant authorities to attain the perfect balance between commemorating Anzac Day and ensuring the safety of the broader community.
