2019 Anzac Day dawn service

At the Cenotaph, Martin Place

The official state dawn service is held at the Cenotaph in Martin Place at 4.30am, about the time at which the first Australians waded ashore at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915.

The dawn service includes a catafalque contingent, an Ode of Remembrance, Last Post bugle call, a minute’s silence, a Reveille played on a bugle and the laying of wreaths.

Extra early-morning train and bus services will be running. Visit or call 131 500 to plan your trip.

Events taking place later in the day include the Anzac Day march, the commemoration service in Hyde Park and the sunset service ceremony in Martin Place.

Please note

For the safety of all patrons, bag checks will be conducted for general public attending the Anzac Day Dawn Service at the Cenotaph.



Thursday 25 April 2019 from 4.15am to 6am
