2016 ANZAC Day Dawn Service

2016 ANZAC Day Dawn Service at North Bondi War Memorial.

6.00am, Monday 25th April 2016

Attended by many thousands of members of the Bondi public, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, regional dignitaries, and serving members of the armed forces both past and present, the ANZAC Day Dawn Service at the North Bondi War Memorial was again an important coming together of the greater Bondi community. All were witness to a moving ceremony in remembrance of those who served, sending our thanks and hope to those who are serving, and extending support to our nations veterans and their families.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Lest We Forget

    Thank you for the 2016 ANZAC Dawn Service, it was so heartfelt and honest. The MC was so strong and compassionate and I will not forget him for a long time. What an extraordinary speaker. My brother toured Afghanistan twice, I came to my first Dawn Service at Bondi 5 years ago when he was deployed. I was so scared to hear about the loss of war, when my fears were so very real. But you held me in your space and every year since, I have sat there on the hill crying silently through the service. I thank you all for the opportunity to honour him and those before him and somehow the fears and memories that my family hold so deeply come to surface for that one hour every year. Thank you
