Anzac Day has special significance in Albany as it is purportedly the site of Australia’s first Dawn Service conducted by Padre White.

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.
