Guy Barnett,Minister for Veterans’ Affairs
I am extremely pleased to hear that Hobart’s ANZAC Day parade will proceed this year.
ANZAC Day is one of our nation’s most significant commemorative days and an opportunity to honour the courage and sacrifice of our servicemen and women.
This year will mark the 106th anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign and the birth of the ANZAC spirit of mateship, bravery and sacrifice.
While the format of this year’s events will be different to that of previous years, I am confident that Tasmanian veterans, their families and the broader community will appreciate the opportunity to take part in our treasured ANZAC Day traditions.
Our Government will continue to work with RSL Tasmania and their sub-branches as they arrange commemorative events this ANZAC Day.
I thank them for their efforts in honouring our ANZAC heritage.
