State War Memorial Dawn Service

Monday, 25 April 2022  

5.55 am to 6.30 am

In line with the current COVID-19 pandemic climate, RSLWA has had to make the difficult decision not to deliver the traditional Kings Park Dawn Service and remove public participation for 2022.

To protect our more vulnerable Veterans, while still delivering an ANZAC Day experience to the wider community, RSLWA have partnered with Radio 94.5 and the Triple M Radio Network to deliver a live broadcast of a Commemorative Service to enable the community to participate in Driveway Dawn Services in the safety of their own homes.

The ANZAC Day Dawn Service at the State War Memorial in Kings Park will be a small, invitation-only event to enable us to broadcast the service to the broader community. 

There will be no additional lighting or infrastructure at Kings Park to support public participation and there will be no additional early morning public transport services into the CBD or to Kings Park.

RSLWA is encouraging people to participate with Driveway Dawn Services from the safety of their homes by tuning in to the live broadcast across the state through Radio 94.5 and the Triple M Radio Network.

ANZAC Day Parade

Monday, 25 April

Perth CBD starting at 9.00 am

The RSLWA is planning for the CBD Parade to proceed while adhering to the Level 1 COVID-19 Restrictions. This will include COVID Marshals on site, physical distancing and proof of vaccination strongly encouraged for all participants.

The Australian Defence Force will step off from the corner of Barrack Street and St Georges Terrace at 9.00 am followed by vintage vehicles and military jeeps carrying Veterans, Ex-services Units, Corps and Regimental Associations. The Parade will proceed along St Georges Terrace, passing the saluting dais before turning right into Victoria Avenue and dispersing at Langley Park.

RSLWA is encouraging people to only attend as observers if they have friends or relatives marching. The Parade will be telecast live by ABC TV and RSLWA is encouraging observers to enjoy the Parade from their own homes.

A sausage sizzle will be provided by The Salvation Army for participants and observers.

The media are asked not to try to interview Veterans while they are marching or being transported in jeeps and vehicles during the March.

For the protection of Parade participants and spectators, there will be a number of road closures in the CBD during the morning on ANZAC Day. Please view the road closures map.
