The Town of Victoria Park, in partnership with the Victoria Park RSL Sub-branch, is remembering the sacrifices made by the men and women who served and fought for our freedom with an Anzac Day Dawn Service on Tuesday 25 April at 6am in Memorial Gardens. 

The Town is encouraging everyone to attend and pay their respects to those who have sacrificed their lives for our country. 

Mayor Trevor Vaughan will make the Mayoral Address, and Captain Michael Saunders will deliver the Commemorative Address. The Reverend Georgina Hawley and Reverend Kay Wee Sim from St Peter's Anglican Church will lead the prayers during the service, whilst the Variety Choir will be singing Amazing Grace. Local students will be talking about what Anzac Day means to them. 

“Anzac Day is a day of remembrance, gratitude and national pride,” said Mayor Trevor Vaughan. 

“It is a day when we remember and honour the brave men and women who have served, and those that are currently serving our country. I look forward to seeing local families at the dawn service as we commemorate Anzac Day. It is important that the spirit of Anzac Day lives on in the minds of our young people to ensure this important tradition continues for years to come. 

“It is especially endearing to see the engagement of our youth with veterans.” 

Light refreshments and a sausage sizzle will be served following the service for those in attendance.

Memorial Gardens is located on the corner of Albany Highway and Harvey Street, Victoria Park, adjacent to the Town’s administration centre.
