Anzac Day, the 25th April, is the national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand.

It is sacred to the memory of the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I and to all those who died and who served in military operations for their countries.
