Community members will gather on Sunday 25 April for the Gosnells RSL Anzac Day March and Dawn Service to pay their respects to past and present servicemen and women.

The march will commence at 6.30am, from the Coles car park, and proceed along Albany Highway to the Gosnells War Memorial in the Civic Centre Gardens for a Dawn Service at 7am, followed by a Gunfire Breakfast.

City of Gosnells Mayor David Goode said the City was proud to support the Gosnells RSL in presenting the Anzac Day March and Dawn Service.

“After the disappointment of having to cancel last year’s event because of COVID-19, I look forward to seeing our community coming together again to commemorate the sacrifice made by our past and present servicemen and women,” he said.

“Anzac Day is an important opportunity to remember those who did not come home from service and their loved ones who were left behind, and to reflect on the immeasurable sacrifices of everyone who served or are currently serving in our armed forces. We owe a great deal to them all.”

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Royal Australian Air Force.

Road closures will be in place for eastbound traffic along Albany Highway between 6.30am and 7am on Sunday 25 April.

Community members are reminded that COVID-19 restrictions will apply to the march, service and breakfast, including mandatory contact registers. To protect those attending commemorations, including past and present servicemen and women, please stay home if your or someone in your household is unwell.
