WHAT does the word “An­zac” mean to you?

Of course it lit­er­ally means Aus­tralian and New Zealand Army Corps, but what does the con­cept of “An­zac” mean to you per­son­ally?

For me it rep­re­sents the foun­da­tion of our Fed­er­a­tion.

An­zac may have been formed af­ter our Fed­er­a­tion, but the things that brought us to­gether – mate­ship, sac­ri­fice and courage to name but a few – are en­trenched in both ours, and An­zac, folk­lore.

As we mark 100 years since Gal­lipoli, let us en­sure we never for­get the tri­als, tribu­la­tions and sac­ri­fices our an­ces­tors have made in the past to build our fu­ture.
