ANZAC Day 2024 in Glen Waverley

A special day in the calendar for many living in Glen Waverley, ANZAC day is the national day of remembrance across Australia and New Zealand for every individual who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. Many residents will have past family members who served our nation during conflicts, while others will feel a great sense of pride this 25th of April. Whatever the reason, ANZAC Day allows everyone to remember and be thankful to those individuals who helped safeguard our freedom and protect the nation we call home.
