Blue Mountains City Council

ANZAC Day Marches 2017

It is important that the community is aware that ANZAC Day marches in the Blue Mountains are going ahead in 2017.

Regrettably, recent reports in the Sydney media relating to the cancellation of ANZAC Day marches in the Blue Mountains were incorrect.

Importantly, it is not the case that Blue Mountains City Council cancelled local ANZAC Day marches.

The threat of cancelling local ANZAC Day marches was a direct result of the cost of NSW Government requirements for anti-terrorism security measures. It was never a question of Council being able to afford to help fund the ANZAC Day marches nor a question of Council priorities. Council was simply asking for NSW Government to share this cost.

However, Council and our local RSL branches have worked together, with the NSW Government to overcome the challenges of conducting the ANZAC Day marches in a changing world.

Council remains steadfast in its commitment to ANZAC Day, the country’s most important national day of remembrance and commemoration.
