The Anzac Day dawn service at Central Park war memorial in Joondalup is expected to draw crowds.

The service, hosted by the Wanneroo Joondalup RSL Sub-Branch and the City of Joondalup, will start at 6am but attendees are asked to arrive before 5.45am.

‘The City’s Anzac Day dawn ceremony has grown in numbers every year and is a great alternative for residents who live locally in the northern suburbs and can’t make it to Kings Park,’ Joondalup Mayor Troy Pickard said.

Major Ash Gogdon will be the master of ceremonies, with Wanneroo Joondalup RSL president Wendy Tuffin to recite The Ode and Reverend John Myles to offer prayer and benediction.

Mr Pickard will also address the ceremony and local dignitaries will lay wreaths of remembrance on behalf of the community.

Free tea, coffee and Anzac biscuits will be served at the end of the ceremony.
