Complete Gold Coast ANZAC Day Guide 2021

Whether it be raising money to help those who have given so much already or to pay respects in a dawn service or march, ANZAC Day is an important time to remember those who have fought for our beautiful sunburnt country.

Dawn Service

The Dawn Service is an important tradition to many Australians. Keep the ANZAC spirit alive, through remembering fallen soldiers and recognising the work that the Defence Forces still do to this day. Dawn Services are held at various locations up and down the coast including Burleigh Heads, Southport, Nerang and Coolangatta. A full list of ANZAC Day dawn and mid-morning services are available here.

ANZAC Biscuits

Although the ANZAC biscuit has changed a lot since its wartime inception there is still a rich national fondness for this rolled oats rascal. You can acquire the ANZAC Biscuits from GF Oats Australia. They help local farmers and donate to Legacy, which supports veteran families.

Try this great recipe and spread the baked goods love this ANZAC day. While originally made to last for months, we can guarantee these delicious biccies won’t last minutes.

Two Up

It’s time to brush up on your coin-tossing skills and hedge your bets because for this day, and this day only, Two Up becomes legal. A tribute to the game played by the Diggers, the pennies get tossed in most RSL’s from 1 pm on ANZAC Day.

Heroes by the Philharmonic Orchestra
