3BA LIVE Broadcast from the Arch of Victory
This Anzac Day marks 100 years since our Diggers landed on the shores of Gallipoli. The day this country showed it had the courage to push through the ultimate adversity.
To help commemorate the fallen, 3BA will simulcast the ANZAC Dawn Service LIVE from the Arch of Victory from 6am.
Following the service join us at the gunfire breakfast at the George Hotel, home of the Ballarat RSL, and the starting point for the ANZAC Day march.
Throughout the morning we will cross live to shores of ANZAC Cove in Gallipoli to connect with other Australians at the place where the ANZAC legend began.
Join us Saturday April 25th as we pay respects to the ANZACS.
Lest we forget…
