The Centenary of ANZAC commemorates 100 years of service and sacrifice by Australian service men and women in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.

The Tasmanian Government encourages Tasmanians to commemorate and participate in this significant occasion by hosting events and activities or by sharing stories of personal family war history.

A Centenary of ANZAC website ( and official Facebook page ( been developed.

The website is a hub of Centenary of ANZAC commemoration activities and information for Tasmanians. It is a great historical resource and includes:
  • An interactive timeline that shows significant Tasmanian and Australian historic dates from wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations since the Federation of Australia in 1901.
  • A place for Tasmanians to share and publish untold stories of war, never before seen photos and stowed away memorabilia.
  • A calendar of events that will feature commemoration events being held throughout the   Centenary.
  •  Historical information about Tasmania's rich military history.
The facebook page provides a casual, two-way channel for engaging with the Tasmanian community on the Tasmanian Centenary of ANZAC. It also allows folks at home to follow the seven Tasmanian students travelling to Gallipoli for ANZAC Day.
