If you are on campus, UNE hosts an ANZAC service at the memorial garden located between Yarm Gwanga Child Care Centre & the Union Building, commencing at 8am that is open to all – you are warmly invited to attend and honour all who have been involved in active duty across all conflict.
The Library will be open from 1:00pm to 5:00pm on Anzac Day.
Rosemary for Remembrance: since ancient times this aromatic herb has been believed to have properties to improve the memory. Perhaps because of this, rosemary became an emblem of both fidelity and remembrance in literature and folklore. Traditionally, sprigs of rosemary are worn on Anzac Day and sometimes on Remembrance Day, and are usually handed out by Legacy and the RSL. Rosemary has particular significance for Australians, as it is found growing wild on the Gallipoli peninsula.
