Anzac Day, 25 April, is one of Australia’s most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.


It is the day on which we remember all Australians who served and died in war and on operational service. The spirit of Anzac, with its qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity.

Many Australians of Lebanese heritage have served with the Australian Armed Forces from the Gallipoli Campaign until the present day – and some paid the ultimate price and died in battle.
