Where To Find ANZAC Day Broadcasts Online

anzac_statueIf you're not heading to an actual ANZAC Day service on Saturday, you've got options other than television.

Telstra is offering a live stream of six different dawn services via its BigPond News site. Telstra also says the streams will be available overseas, which is good news for expats. Its schedule of services (all times AEST) is:

0430 – 0500 Sydney Dawn Service 0530 – 0600 Canberra Dawn Service 0900 – 0930 NZ National Wreath Laying 1230 – 1315 Gallipoli Dawn Service 1330 – 1430 Villers Bretonneux Dawn Service 1700 – 1745 Lone Pine Service

To brush up on your ANZAC Day history, head to the ABC's Gallipoli: The First Day "3D documentary site". It's impressive, though (as the site warns) it could knock a big hole in your download quota (as could too much Telstra streaming if you're not a BigPond customer). Image from Wikimedia Commons


    Get off your @ss and go out to an ANZAC day dawn service. They gave the ultimate sacrifice so we can sit on our butts and whine that its not a public holiday.

    Get real..... Go and show our returned servicemen and women just how thankful we are.

      Even if you did that, you might well want to catch a later service from the battlefields locations online.

      Attending or not attending a Dawn Service or an ANZAC Day march shouldn't be the only way of showing our gratitude. Giving to charities such as Legacy is also a way of helping our veterans and their families- even moreso now that we have casualties among our serving soldiers in Afghanistan.

    So far the feed isn't working for the two expats in this house who are over in the states :(

    PS - I found the bigpond feed via google, thanks for the "tips" here :P
