Redfern ANZAC Day March

Coloured Diggers March in Redfern

Coloured Diggers March in Redfern

In recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander military veterans, the Coloured Digger March is held in Redfern on Anzac Day each year.

In 2013, we honoured those of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Diggers who were taken as Prisoners of War in foreign lands. In continuing this theme, this year we will honour those of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Diggers who fought bravely alongside their mates but are now buried in foreign soil.

If you have a loved one who was buried in defence of our country, in foreign lands, come join us. If you know an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Digger who fought for our country and did not come home, gather with us.

On 25 April 2014, the Redfern Day ANZAC Day March and Commemorative Service will be starting at 1.45 with a wreath laying ceremony at the Redfern Park war memorial.

At 2pm, there will be march from Redfern Park to The Block, followed by a rememberance ceremony at the Redfern Community Centre at 2.30pm. There will be light refreshments and entertainment at the community centre from 4pm onwards.
