Welcome to the ANZAC website
Throughout our military history, Australians have earned a reputation for their gallantry and courage, and shown they are prepared to defend the right for freedom and democracy.
Australians have been involved in a long list of military campaigns, from the Colonial wars to the World War I and World War II, the Korean War, the Malayan Emergency, the Indonesia Confrontation, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, and war in Afghanistan and Iraq. Australian peacekeepers have also been in the field with the United Nations continuously for over 50 years.
The actions of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) during the Gallipoli campaign left a powerful legacy. We remember the many soldiers, sailors, airmen, nurses and other service personnel who have helped shape Australia's identity. They continue to teach us about courage, resilience and mateship. We take honour in remembering these Australians, today and always.
Lest we forget
