In the foreground is a mainly blue flag with white star shapes at right and left bottom. At top right is a red, white and blue design of crosses. The flag is attached to a white pole and in the background is a mainly blue sky.
Join us in this momentous occasion as we celebrate freedom and the sacrifices made by those who came before us. This event is particularly special because it falls on ANZAC Day, allowing us to honour the freedom and sacrifice of both Australia and Italy. It’s a day of remembrance and celebration that we hope you will share with us.
All welcome. We look forward to seeing you there!
