On November the first 1914, Albany was the final point of departure for Anzac troops on their way to serve, fight and die in the First World War. During the Centenary period, Albany was the focus for a range of commemoration and remembrance events, providing a fitting and emotional tribute to the men and women who lost their lives. Now, the Anzac Day commemorations have taken on a greater significance, and due to Albany’s status as a place of pilgrimage for the Anzac legend, the events have grown too. A visit to Albany is not complete without understanding the sacrifice and importance of the Anzacs to the community, and Anzac Albany is a moving and important way to appreciate, learn and remember.
