ANZAC Day on Tuesday 25 April 2023 marks the 108th anniversary of the landings of Australian and New Zealand troops at Gallipoli.
Tweed Heads and Coolangatta RSL Sub-Branch invites the community to attend the Dawn Service and Main Service ceremonies to be conducted at Chris Cunningham Park, Tweed Heads (details below).

“This year, Legacy celebrates 100 years of operation and we are proud to have their members lead our march,” said Dr John Grif昀椀n, Sub-Branch President.
Also participating in the march will be members of the Coolangatta Country Women’s Association, representing those who served in the Australian Women’s Land Army.
The AWLA operated between 1942 and 1945 to combat the rising labour shortages in the farming sector due to the male workers joining the armed forces.
“We look forward to seeing thousands of people of all ages at the Services this year, coming together to ensure that the deeds and sacri昀椀ces of our veterans and others are honoured and not forgotten,” said Dr Griffin.
