Anzac Parade 2016

Anzac Day is a very important date in our calendar that recognises the sacrifices our Defence Force Personnel have made over the last 104 years.

The Veterans of the Tewantin Noosa RSL Sub Branch, who are all volunteers, plan and manage Tewantin’s ANZAC Day services, ensuring that the whole community has the opportunity to mark this significant day and the proceedings are conducted in accordance to the set national protocols.

From the first Anzac Day in Tewantin in 1922 to today, ANZAC Day has run smoothly thanks to the Veterans from the sub-branch along with volunteers from the SES, Sea Cadets, Sea Scouts and Women’s Auxiliary and involvement from the local Police, Ambulance Service, Fire Brigade and the Tewantin Noosa RSL Memorial Club.

The Veterans of the Sub Branch are conscious of the legacy left by those who went before and will ensure Anzac Day remains relevant to the community for generations to come.

A very important component of the day is the involvement of local youth from the schools, sea cadets and sea scouts.  The Tewantin Primary School’s band is leading the parade this year, and the Good Shepherd Lutheran College music department is participating in the Dawn Service.   Each year the Captains from a selected school give a short talk on the importance of Anzac Day and this year the Sunshine Beach High School Captains will be speaking.

The times for this year’s Tewantin Noosa Anzac Day are:

5.30am Dawn Service at Tewantin Cenotaph – for those wishing to march, form up in Pelican St by 5.20am.

6.30am Cemetery Service - Service starts at 6.30am, there will be 3 buses available after the Dawn Service at 6.00am to transfer those wishing to attend the Cemetery Service and return to the RSL Memorial Club.
