ANZAC Sunset Service
Attend an ANZAC ceremony at the home of one of the first European families to settle in the Swan River Colony. A grandson of the original colonists died on the Western Front. As the sun goes down the community will remember him and all ANZACs who have served in conflicts and peace keeping operations.
Many WA families were affected by the Great War, losing a brother, son, uncle, husband, sweetheart or father. The Hardeys were one – Corporal Joe Hardey was killed at Pozieres in July 1916. He was named for his grandfather, the first European owner of Peninsula Farm, which makes this a fitting place to remember all Australians and New Zealanders who served in conflicts and peace keeping operations. Join us on the banks of the Swan River for this moving ceremony.
