ANZAC Day 2020

Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre is open from 1pm to 5pm on ANZAC Day, Saturday 25th April 2020.

Store trading hours may differ throughout the day.

We’ve also gathered some great ideas to remember and pay respects from home.

Our favourite is #LightUpTheDawn.  To participate, you simply stand in your driveway, front lawn or balcony, with a candle, torch or your phone, and take in the dawn.  You can observe a minute of silence, or you can organise your own home service – click on this link for the full LIGHT UP THE DAWN HOME SERVICE GUIDE

Here are some other family friendly ways to participate in the ANZAC Day remembrance from home:
