In the early hours of 25th April each year, thousands of local residents, visitors, friends and strangers gather in silence on Bargara’s foreshore to pay homage to those who made the supreme sacrifice and those who have served their country since the birth of the ANZAC spirit on the shores of Gallipoli in 1915.
As the darkness relents to an emerging dawn and the sun breaks over the ocean’s horizon,
it’s a time to reflect…to honour…to remember.
ABOUT THE BARGARA REMEMBERS COMMEMORATIONS COMMITTEE
Bargara Remembers Inc. is the township’s official Commemorations Committee (formerly known as the Bargara ANZAC Day Commemorations Committee) which held the first ANZAC Day Dawn Service on 25th April 1997.
Over successive years the committee has hosted the annual Service on Bargara’s idyllic foreshore with ever-increasing attendances to become one of regional Queensland’s the most respected Dawn Services.
Supported by local businesses, individuals and a small army of volunteers, the event reflects the community’s commitment to honouring those who have fallen together with those who have served in the defence of this Nation and its values.
