Remembrance Day Service – Centennial Park
A time honoured tradition at Centennial Park, the Remembrance Day Service commemorates the courage and sacrifices of the Australian men and women who have fallen and served in times of war.
The service takes place in Derrick Gardens beneath two pine trees reputedly grown from the seeds of Lone Pine in Turkey, the site of Australia’s main war memorial in Gallipoli where the Battle of Lone Pine was fought in 1915.
Australian flags adorn more than 4000 memorial headstones, providing a moving backdrop for the service.
Led by the mounted Barossa Light Horse Division, the service commences with an historical re-enactment catafalque party – Re-enact SA, followed by the Scotch College Pipes and Drums band. Walford Girls Choir will provide a moving rendition of Flanders in the Field and the National Anthem, prior to the Last Post at 11am and the poignant one minute of silence.
Along with official guests, you are invited to place your wreath or personal tribute at the Cross of Remembrance.
Following the service you are all welcome to join the representatives from the State Government, local councils and the armed forces for light refreshments in the Jubilee Complex.
