Anzac Day Sydney dawn service centres on Martin place and the Cenotaph memorial starting at 4.15am on 25th April. This traditional and moving event has become so popular that audience areas now extend down George Street with many TV screens setup for those to see. Many Sydney audience areas fill by 3am.
Once the Anzac Day Sydney Dawn service is complete a great many venues and cafes will be open to cater for breakfast. A fab opportunity to chat and reminisce. Later in the morning the traditional Anzac Day March takes place between Martin place and Hyde Park with tens of thousands of well wishers paying tribute and saluting the Diggers.
In the afternoon sanctioned sporting events take place and venues will be open to have a friendly drink, meals and of course a game of Two-Up! Make sure you enjoy your Anzac Day in Sydney!
