ANZAC Day Dawn Service and Breakfast

25 April 2019

Please join The Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Dr Michael Spence AC, and the Sydney University Regiment, at the 2019 ANZAC Day Dawn Service, followed by an informal breakfast.

On ANZAC day above all days we recall those who served in war and who did not return to receive the grateful thanks of the nation. May they all rest proudly in the knowledge of their achievement, and may we and our successors in that heritage left to us, prove worthy of their sacrifice.

Visitor information and site safety
The Dawn Service is a standing ceremony conducted in the dark prior to sunrise; accordingly, the weather is likely to be cold and we encourage visitors to dress for the conditions.

We ask all visitors to be aware of their surroundings as the grounds can be uneven and may be icy or slippery in the early hours of the morning. We therefore advise caution when entering the University grounds and when moving around the site.

There will be limited unallocated seating available for the Dawn Service. If you require seating please ensure that you arrive early.
