Light Up the Dawn was an idea which originated within the Australian community during COVID. It was supported and promoted across Australia in a year of great challenge and change.
As the sun peeked above the horizon, the country stood united. People stood in uniforms or pyjamas, wearing medals, poppies and sprigs of rosemary to let Australia’s veterans know that their service and sacrifice will never be forgotten.
Due to the amazing community response to this initiative, we will again encourage Australians to come together in 2021. You are invited to gather in your driveways, balconies, or living rooms at 6:00 am to commemorate ANZAC traditions.
