Anzac Day is a day of remembrance. It is an opportunity to honour those who served in the defence of Australia and its interests, especially remembering those who paid the supreme sacrifice or otherwise suffered as a result of their service.
2017 marks 101 years since the first commemoration of Anzac in Sydney. The day begins with a dawn service at the Cenotaph in Martin Place.
The march starts at 9am.
Due to construction work in George Street for the light rail project, the march will commence at the intersection of Martin Place and Elizabeth Street and travel south on Elizabeth Street to Liverpool Street.
The Act of Remembrance will be observed as units pass the ANZAC Memorial in Hyde Park South.
The march will be televised on ABC TV and will be available on iView after the event.
After the march, a commemoration service is held at the ANZAC Memorial, Hyde Park, adjacent to the Pool of Remembrance, at 12.30pm.
The sunset service will start at the Cenotaph, Martin Place, at 5pm. It will be a short service accompanied by the NSW Ambulance Service Band and followed by the lowering of the flags. It brings to a conclusion the official Anzac Day commemorations in Sydney.
Road closures and special event clearways are in place in the city on Wednesday 25 April from 2.30am to 6pm. Some roads reopen at 9am and 4pm.
