November 11, 2017 0 comments

A time honoured tradition at Centennial Park, our Remembrance Day Service commemorates the courage and sacrifices of the Australian men and women who have fallen and served in times of war.

We welcome you and your family and friends to join us as we remember and honour the courage of the Australian men and women who have fallen and served in times of war.

Set within Derrick Gardens, our specifically designated area for returned service personnel, our Remembrance Day Service is a reminder of the personal sacrifices made by many young men and women to ensure a better future for generations to come.

More than 4000 Australian flags adorn memorial headstones, providing a moving backdrop for the service.

Led by the mounted Barossa Light Horse Division the service commences with a catafalque party consisting of cadets from the three armed forces followed by the Scotch College pipes and drums band. Walford Girls choir provide a moving rendition of Flanders in the Field and the National Anthem prior to the Last Post at 11am and the poignant one minute of silence.

Along with official guests, you are welcome to place your wreath or personal tribute at the Cross of Remembrance.

Following the service please join us join us and representatives from the State Government, local councils and the armed forces for light refreshments in our Jubilee Complex.
