ANZAC Day is a significant national day of commemoration for Australians and New Zealanders. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) during the First World War. On 25 April 1915, the ANZACs landed at Gallipoli and began seven months of intense combat that marked the arrival of two young nations on the world stage.

This year’s commemorations are being hosted by the Embassy of Australia in Cairo. The Australian Ambassador to Egypt, HE Dr Ralph King, warmly invites Australian and New Zealand residents, family and friends to the official ANZAC Day commemorative service and wreath laying ceremony.

Date: Friday 25 April 2014
Time: 4.45am for a 5.00am start
Place: Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery
Nabil El-Wakkad Street

Following the service, guests will be invited to the J.W. Marriott Hotel (Ring Road, Mirage City, Heliopolis) for breakfast. For catering purposes, please let us know if you plan to attend.
