Remembrance Day

The citizens of Australia come together every year to observe Remembrance Day.

This event is always celebrated at the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month (11th November), remembering the armistice signing on the 11th of November 1918, which ceased hostilities on the Western Front of World War I.

Remembrance Day, 2024 Date & Time of Melbourne Shrine Service

This event is observed to remember citizens who lost their lives in all past wars and peacekeeping operations by Australians. The event was initially known as Armistice Day in the past, but later on, the event became popularly known as Remembrance Day.

Observing this event is to pay homage to all the soldiers who fought for our country. After the memorial program, bands, locals, and soldiers will all come together to remember this significant moment in Australia’s history.

Armistice Day marked the end of the bloodiest war in Australian history. During the war, too many men and women of Australia lost their lives on the battlefields of Europe, the Middle East and Turkey. Thus, this event is observed to remember all those 60,000 dead soldiers and 156,000 wounded during this deadly war.

You can get to the Shrine of Remembrance by walking just 10 minutes from Flinders Street Station up St. Kilda Road or take any St Kilda Road southbound tram except route number 1. Disembark at tram stop 19 or the Domain Road interchange.

If you cannot attend the Melbourne ceremonies, pay your respects by observing a minute of silence at 11am.

    • Hi Jenny,

      I couldn’t find a definitive answer to your question, but be that Remembrance Day has been observed in Commonwealth countries since 1919 and Anzac Day since 1921, i would assume that all conflicts after those dates get commemorated on those dates.

      Based on my assumption, it did seem that the 2020 Remembrance Day observed the 75th Anniversary of the end of World War Two.
