ANZAC Day – 25 April – is probably Australia's most important national occasion. It marks a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand to remember members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I. It now more broadly commemorates all those who died and served in military operations for their countries.

What does Anzac Day really mean to you? For me, it is the day that our dead ask us "would you have done the same for us?" and we answer "yes we would".

This year on ANZAC Day, to show respect for those who gave up their lives, we will be opening restricted hours, from 12 am till 5 pm.  We will stay open later if it's busy enough, so if you plan to drop by after 5 pm, please give a call and tell us that you are coming. That's it really - we will be open for business as usual at all other times of the week. Please enjoy your Anzac Day responsibly, and as always, take care when driving.
