ANZAC Dawn Service in Albany

 

If you haven’t decided which ANZAC day service to attend this year, there’s still plenty of time to decide. Here are five of the most moving ANZAC Dawn services taking place in Perth and WA in 2018.

 

Rottnest Island Service

The beautiful dawn service on Rottnest Island, presided over by Australian Navy Officers, starts at 6am on the grassed area outside Dome Café and Thomson’s Restaurant. After the service, stay and enjoy Rottnest Island, with free kids activities from 8:30am including ANZAC biscuit decorating and activity booklets. The whole family can enjoy a free ANZAC day breakfast after the ceremony, cooked by The Rottnest Voluntary Guides Association in the Settlement Mall.

The ferry times for getting to the Dawn Service are:

Departing Fremantle to Rottnest at 5am

Kings Park Service

The traditional Kings Park Service never fails to deliver a moving and commemorative experience. This Wednesday, the traditional Dawn Service is being held at the State War Memorial on Fraser Avenue from 5:50am-7:00am. Enjoy a special Corroboree on Fraser Lawn performed in conjunction with Maori from the Haka for Life Foundation, straight after the service.
