RAAF flypast added to City of Joondalup’s Anzac dawn service program

The City of Joondalup event on Monday, April 25, will be held at the Central Park war memorial from 6am.

Attendees are asked to arrive no later than 5.45am.

“I am sure the flypast will add to the spectacle of what is a very moving and emotional ceremony and I encourage all residents to show their support for our servicemen and women,” Joondalup Mayor Troy Pickard said.

The service will also include a wreath laying ceremony, with tea, coffee and Anzac biscuits provided at the end. This year’s service marks the 101st anniversary of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corp landing on the beaches of Gallipoli Peninsula.

Services to mark Anzac Day

ANZAC Day services will take place across WA, marking the 100th anniversary of the most devastating battles in Australian military history.

Local Returned Services League sub-branches and other organisations will hold services and parades to commemorate those involved in World War I and battles on the Western Front in 1916.
