Crowds gather around the Eternal Flame at the Shrine of Remembrance Anzac Day Dawn Service

Remember together.

Attending the Dawn Service at the Shrine is an experience that everyone should have at least once in their lifetime. Come together to pause and reflect on the service and sacrifice of generations of Victorians, and all those who suffer the consequences of war.

All are welcome to commemorate on the Shrine Reserve. No tickets or bookings are required.
