Anzac Day 2018 Services across the Blue Mountains

Archived 24 Jun 2018 - Posted: 24 Apr 2018
Buckland Park, Macquarie Road, Springwood
Join in commemorating the service and sacrifice of all Australians who have served our country on this very special Anzac Day which also marks the Centenary of the Battle of Villers-Bretonneux.

On 25th April 1918 the Australian 13th and 15th Brigades were an instrumental part of the British counter attack which saw Villers-Bretonneux cleared of the Germans who had overrun the town on the day before. This counterattack took place on the third anniversary of the Anzac landings at Gallipoli and effectively ended the German offensive launched one month before.
