Here's How You Can Commemorate ANZAC Day 2020 From Home

BALGAL BEACH, AUSTRALIA - APRIL 25: Two Australian soldiers are seen during an ANZAC day commemorative dawn service at Balgal Beach April 25, 2007. Australians and New Zealanders today commemorate the 92nd anniversary of ANZAC (Australian New Zealand Army Corps) Day, when First World War troops landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula, Turkey early April 25, 1915.

Anzac Day is going to look very different this year due to the rules and restrictions of COVID-19, but that doesn't mean you can't commemorate those who have served and are still serving today. Read on to find out how you can watch the dawn service from your living room and other ways you can honour our heroes past and present.

How to Watch the ANZAC Day Dawn Service at Home

While all marches and services have been cancelled, the Australian National War Memorial in Canberra will broadcast a dawn service live on ABC from 5.30 a.m. with another closed service being broadcast later at 10 a.m. Both of these services will also be available to watch via live stream on the RSL NSW Facebook page.

Consider Lighting a Candle

To commemorate those who have served, lost their lives or are still serving, the state and territory RSL branches are encouraging Australians to stand at the end of their driveways or on their balconies at 6 a.m. on Saturday morning with a candle, and pause for a minutes silence.

Virtually Visit the Australian War Memorial

The Virtual Australian War Memorial site will allow you to visit the memorial from the safety of your home.
