ANZAC Day is Tuesday 25 April, and we are letting you know about some potential disruptions to your local area.

ANZAC Day is a day of national and international significance that gives us all the opportunity to pause and reflect on the service and sacrifice of those who have served in defence of our nation and way of life, and those who continue to serve today. 

Commemorating service and sacrifice each ANZAC Day is part of the fabric of Victoria, an integral part of our lives each April. This year, we ask all Victorians to let their ANZAC spirit shine, and wherever you find yourself this ANZAC Day, it is important to pause, reflect and remember.
