What is it?  Anzac Day: A Remembrance and National Day for Australia and New Zealand which indicate the Anniversary of their first major military action fought by Australians and New Zealanders during the First World War.

Anzac Day is to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought the Ottoman Empire in Gallipoli.

Now, Anzac Day also served to commemorate the lives of Australians who died in the Second World War, and it has been expanded to include those who lost their lives in all Australian military and Peace keeping operations.
