TWO-UP is an Anzac Day tradition.
The game, which involves pitching two coins up in the air and betting on how they will land, was played extensively by Australian soldiers during World War I.
And even though the game was outlawed through large parts of the country (with Perth’s old Burswood Casino an exception), Anzac Day – April 25 – sees an amnesty declared in most parts.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT: HOW TO GET TO ANZAC DAY DAWN SERVICES
With that in mind, here’s a list of places where you can partake in this quintessentially Anzac experience – these RSL sub-branches all applied for two-up permits through the Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor.
