ANZAC Day Dawn Service

Join us for a moving ANZAC Day Dawn Service at the Fremantle War Memorial, Monument Hill at 5:50am, Tuesday 25th April 2017.

Two large screens will be installed behind the monument so that all attendees can clearly see the service on the cenotaph.

An additional screen is being installed this year further down the hill on the High street side to increase viewing areas.

Expected conclusion of the service is approximately 6:30am.


For those who wish to lay a wreath during the service: If you are planning to attend the ANZAC Day Dawn Services, and intend to lay a wreath during the service it is very important that you register your attendance so that the city of Fremantle can include you on their wreath laying schedule. Please email call out Events Administrator on 9432 9728 to register.

(Please note that the cost and arrangement of wreaths is the responsibility of the wreath layer).

We encourage the use of public transport if possible. For those who park in streets surrounding the War Memorial, driveways must not be blocked and traffic (and emergency vehicles) must be able to traverse the street.


The entry for people with disability and/or seniors drop off is via the entrance/ exit on Knutsford street. Traffic management personnel will monitor who is able to enter this area.

If you have a disability and are driving yourself to the service, please contact the City of Fremantle (see contact details below) to ensure that your name is on the parking list. Parking in the grounds of the Monument is very limited and is only available to participants in the service and ACROD permit holders.

Able bodied drivers are able to drop off disabled or elderly passengers up the top of this entrance point, quite close to the Monument. A turning circle will be marked out with witches hats and drivers, once they have dropped off their passengers, will be escorted out of the area by traffic management personnel and must find parking elsewhere.

The City of Fremantle will have an Auslan interpreter present at this event signing the service. This will be broadcast across all three screens.
