This morning, just prior to the rising of the sun, Australian’s for all walks of life gathered in the parks of our cities and our small country towns to honour the men and women of our military who made the ultimate sacrifice so we may enjoy the life we do today.


A life in Australia that is governed by a democratic process and free from many of the troubles that we see around the world today.


And my thanks reaches out to those in the ExplorOz community who have served, or are currently serving…


As I stood silently by the Memorial in our local park the sun was piercing the eastern horizon on a glorious morning, the Kookaburras’ were heralding the arrival of a new day and I thought how lucky am I to have grown up in this great Nation of ours.


Our outback travels take us through many small towns and communities in this vast country of ours and it was from these places that the young men of a new Nation enlisted to serve the Empire…


Bluey and the Boys, people just like you and me, men, just boys, that didn’t think twice about serving King and Country.


Today marks the 100th Anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli, Turkey, in 1915, a place where the term ANZAC was forged on that small wind swept peninsular, stained forever with the blood of our brave and courageous…


"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning; We will remember them."


Lest We Forget
“Those who don’t think
it can be done shouldn’t
bother the person doing it…”
