Australian Defence Force personnel joined thousands of French military personnel marching down the famous Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris on Thursday, 14 July 2016 to mark French National Day celebrations in France.
Australian Defence Force personnel commemorated the centenaries of the First World War Battles of Fromelles and Pozières, on the Western Front, on 19 and 23 July 2016, with services to honour the service and sacrifice of those Australians who fought there 100 years ago.
On 18 August 2016, the Australian Defence Force participated in various commemorations for the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan, including attending the National Service on Anzac Parade and hosting a parade at the home of 6 RAR at Gallipoli Barracks in Brisbane.
The Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience provides an immersive and interactive way for Australians to commemorate the First World War and ensuing century of service. This once-in-a-lifetime event is part of the Commonwealth Government's Anzac Centenary national program.
