ANZAC Day 2022

2022 saw once again the public commemorating ANZAC Day with around 5,000 at the Dawn Service and 2,000 at the Commemorative and Wreath Laying Service.

Captain Michael OBORNE CSC RAN was guest speaker at both services on behalf of the Chief of Navy, and Peta MURPHY, Federal Member for Dunkley spoke at the Dawn service, in addition to Paul EDBROOKE, local member for Frankston who spoke at the commemorative service. Both services were supported by the Reverend Glen Macrae of St. Lukes Church, and local cadets from both Army and Air Force.

A highlight at the completion of both services is the general public laying poppies in the garden, which is within the memorial and becomes a feature for many weeks to come.

Following the Wreath Laying, where over 30 wreaths were placed along the memorial wall, 550 service members and families returned to the RSL for lunch.
