The Swan river in PerthANZAC Day in PerthAnzac Day Perth dawn service is the 4am awakening of a commemorative day where tens of thousands of Perth people gather around the State War Memorial in Perth's Kings Park. The cenotaph is the centre stage for these proceedings honouring those that gave their lives in service to our nation. It is a truly reflective and moving tribute. Lest we Forget.
Note: Sometimes the morning can be cold up on Kings Park so rugs are a must!

Afterwards family and friends with a small stroll can find a Perth venue serving coffee and breakfast for an opportunity to talk items of ANZAC family interest. And then it will be time to gather again for the Anzac March that begins around mid morning through Perth.

After this celebration it might be time for bite of lunch and Perth venues will be catering for the large crowds. Perth people can then indulge in watching some of the aussie sports like horse racing or AFL or more quieter time around the Swan river and Perth parks.
