Anzac Day Celebrations at Wynnum




It always surprises me how many people attend the Dawn Anzac Day services. There were thousands in the city, and towns and suburbs all around the country would have had a good attendance. Actually it increases every year.

Ceremonies start at 4.28 am. That was the very time that the forces landed on Gallipoli beaches all those years ago. The weather was most pleasant this year - I didn't need a jacket. The ceremony was held at the cenotaph in the grounds of the Wynnum Services Club.

Later on the march wended it's way through the suburb for yet another ceremony at the cenotaph.

These photos are of the march in Bay Terrace, Wynnum on April 25th, 2007.
