Remembrance Day

Who will you stop to remember on 11 November? Explore ways to commemorate at home, work, and in person at Anzac Square.

Who will you stop to remember?

On 11 November, at 11am, millions of Australians will join in observing one minute's silence to commemorate Remembrance Day - a quiet moment held in recognition of those who have served, died, or suffered in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.

Wherever you are, and whatever you’re doing, we want to help you commemorate this Remembrance Day. Anzac Square Memorial Galleries will be open from 10am—4pm for city dwellers wishing to commemorate in person or visit our website from 1 November to request a poppy be placed on your behalf.
