Fremantle ANZAC Day commemorative events 2017

Fremantle is a unique location to honour ANZAC Day as it was the last Australian experience many soldiers and sailors had before departing our shores to join the war effort overseas.

The day will commence with a traditional silent ANZAC Day Dawn Service at the Fremantle War Memorial, home to the plaques honouring the 849 Fremantle servicemen and women who failed to return from WW1.

It will conclude with the traditional ANZAC Day March through the streets of Fremantle and closing ceremony on the Esplanade Reserve.

Additional services and events will take place across Fremantle and North Fremantle throughout the day.
