Find Anzac Day dawn services and parades near you

Since 1916, Queenslanders have gathered on the anniversary of the Gallipoli landing to pay their respects to the many selfless men and women who have served in defence of our nation.

Wherever you are in Queensland, it’s likely that your local Returned and Services League of Australia (Queensland) sub branch has plans to help continue these Anzac Day traditions—with a dawn service, parade, or similar ceremony.

Visit the RSL Queensland Anzac Day website for details on services, parades and marches hosted by your local sub branch.

The Queensland Anzac Centenary online calendar also includes details for various Anzac Day events around the state, including the dawn service at Muckadilla, the march at Eulo, the ceremonies at Tambo and more.
