ANZAC Day holds a special place on the Rottnest Island calendar of events. The Island has a long and proud tradition of military service and on ANZAC Day we commemorate the men and women, both past and present, who have served their country in this moving dawn service.
Presided over by Australian Navy Officers, the ceremony starts at 05.45am on the foreshore as the sun rises over the beautiful waters of Thomson Bay to the lament of the bagpipe. The service will be followed by a Gunfire Breakfast proudly cooked by volunteers.

Afterwards, either travel back at 8:30am, or enjoy free activities before travelling on the ferry back to Hillarys at 11:30am.
