They (the AN­ZAC’S) have given us this beau­ti­ful coun­try we live in. With­out their ef­forts that wasn't pos­si­ble and Aus­tralia wouldn't be what it is to­day. I will be at­tend­ing a Dawn Ser­vice on the Gold Coast.

Keith Galletly

AN­ZAC Day is about re­mem­ber­ing the dig­gers who lost their lives in Gal­lipoli. I will be at­tend­ing the Dawn Ser­vice.

Na­dia Topia

My an­ces­tors fought in Gal­lipoli so it means a lot to me per­son­ally. I will be go­ing to the Dawn Ser­vice in the park be­fore go­ing to the march.

Vee Ran­dell

It's a good time to re­flect and re­mem­ber the sac­ri­fices made for us. It can be lost over time but the cel­e­bra­tion is a re­minder. I will be hav­ing a bar­beque with fam­ily and friends.

Luke Stacpoole

AN­ZAC Day is about re­mem­ber­ing those who fought for our coun­try so we can live in the free land we have to­day. I will be cel­e­brat­ing by hav­ing a few beers with friends and fam­ily.

Steve John­son

It's about recog­nis­ing the war dead and armed ser­vices in gen­eral. Re­mem­ber­ing what they've given up for us. I'm here for a hol­i­day but we will be at­tend­ing a Dawn Ser­vice and look­ing for a Two-up venue in the af­ter­noon.

Joan Rose

To re­mem­ber the people that gave us free­dom and those who cur­rently keep us safe and sound. I will be at the Reef Gate­way Ho­tel where the vet­er­ans will meet and talk to one an­other.
