Anzac Day

Anzac Day is the highlight of the Sub-Branch’s year. Our ideal position being located just 500 metres from the Brighton Beach and the Arch of Remembrance at the Brighton Jetty adds a special feeling to the day.


Master of Ceremony – Mr. Rod Murray

NB WWII veterans are requested to use the seats provided during the service. Similarly, any veterans or service personnel from other conflicts and areas are advised to use the seats if needed.

The Sub-Branch acknowledges the assistance of the SA Pipes and Drums, the Marion Salvation Army Band, the Brighton Secondary School Head Prefects and Choir, and the Groovy Girl Guides. Attendance for the past three years was estimated by the SA Police at 4-5,000 people. See Photo section for more.

Marchers congregate at the Clubrooms at 0530, with the March to the Arch of Remembrance at 0545. The Dawn Service is at 0600  for 40 minutes.

Light meals are available throughout the day and there will be entertainment from 9am to 2pm.
