How you can hear the Governor’s reflections on ANZAC Day 2020

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, ANZAC Day will be commemorated in new and ‘virtual’ ways this year to ensure the safety of our community.

Over the past month, the Governor has been busy making sure that the traditional Vice Regal ANZAC Day message can be delivered to the community; and that veterans and their families are not forgotten.

Although we can’t gather together like we normally would, you are invited to see and hear the Governor speak in the following ways on ANZAC Day:
