On Tuesday 25th April, we will come together to remember the Anzacs who fought so bravely in the First World War, and those who have served and sacrificed their lives since then. It is a special day for the nation, and it cements our connection with our neighbouring New Zealand. Many will line the streets of Darwin on Tuesday to celebrate our war heroes, and the team at Ray White Bayside will be amongst the crowds, enjoying the day’s festivities.
The RSL clubs will of course be front and centre of the commemorations, and after the Dawn Service, there is a beautiful breakfast, served at 7am, followed by a traditional game of two-up at 10am. You don’t get much more traditional than that, and this is a game that has been enjoyed since Gallipoli.
The Annual March will commence at 8:45am, departing from the Esplanade and making way to Cavanagh Street. As a result, there will be a number of road closures, and fantastic vantage points so you make sure you don’t miss a thing.
Between 5am and 7am, the Esplanade, from Knuckey and Herbert Street will not be accessible for vehicles, whilst Herbert to Daly will be closed from 8am to 9am. Disabled parking, drop-offs and vehicles with passes can access the Cenotaph via checkpoint on Smith Street.
To facilitate the Parade, Knuckey, Bennett and Cavanagh Street will be closed from 8am to 10am.
Anzac Day is one of the most important days on our calendar, and it is an opportunity to enjoy time with family and friends and the wider community. The Ray White Bayside team wish everyone a very special and memorable day. Lest we forget.
