Poppies at the Australian War Memorial in CanberraANZAC Day in CanberraThe Nations capital of Canberra commemorates Anzac Day with the early dawn service at the Australian War Memorial. The Anzac Day Canberra dawn service can be quite chilly in the brisk early morning air. So make sure you rug up as it all starts around 5am. It is a fabulous event held with great dignity.

The dawn service is followed later around 10am by the National ceremony and march. In between the service and the march it is a good opportunity to have some tucker with an Anzac Breakfast. Many of the cafes and restaurants of Canberra will be open to serve. And then later in the day after the march it's ideal to catch an Anzac Day Lunch and reflect on the earlier services.

Enjoy your Anzac Day in Canberra.
