Anzac Day 2017

The Australian and New Zealand High Commissions to Brunei Darussalam would like to invite you to a commemorative service to mark ANZAC Day 2017 at 600am on Tuesday, 25 April at the Brunei-Australia Memorial, Muara Beach.

ANZAC Day has become the national day of remembrance for Australia and New Zealand. While it originally marked the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War, today, it is an occasion when Australians and New Zealanders honour those who have served in all the wars in which we have been involved.

All members of the public are invited to join us to mark this significant day.

The service will commence promptly at 6am. A light breakfast will be served following the service.

The dress code is smart casual for civilians and ceremonial summer dress for military personnel.

Please register your attendance either via email: austhicom.brunei@dfat.gov.au before 13 April 2017.
