Anzac Day

Coogee Dawn Service 2023

Anzac Day is a National day of remembrance and commemoration. Commemorative services are held each year at dawn, the time of the original Gallipoli landing.

The Coogee Anzac Day Dawn Service is produced in collaboration with the Coogee Randwick Clovelly RSL sub-branch, and will be held at 5.30am on Tuesday 25 April at Goldstein Reserve, Coogee.

The service will be livestreamed on Randwick Council's Facebook and below on this page.

The service will include a Welcome to Country, prayer, laying of wreaths, Last Post bugle call, a minute’s silence, the New Zealand and Australian anthems and also the National anthem sung in Dharawal language, and other special musical performances by Amber Lawrence, Bondi Brass, and South Coogee Public School Choir.

We would like to thank all the sub branches in Randwick City: Coogee Randwick Clovelly, Kensington, Malabar, Maroubra and Matraville for their ongoing support of ANZAC Day commemorations.
