Anzac Day Parade 2013

Today my mum and I drove to Brisbane for the Anzac Day Parade.  We left home (the Gold Coast) at 0815 in hope of finding a park in the city close by - and we were just so lucky, we got a park just down from the Sofitel Hotel and took the escalators down to Anne Street and we were right at the foot of the Shrine of Remembrance - how lucky was that.

Because we had such a good run in with no traffic on the road we managed to get a place on the street right in the front row.  This was my first Anzac Parade and it was just amazing. It was a very humbling experience.  It brings everything back home and sure makes you appreciate what these amazing people did for us.  Next year I will be going to a dawn service.  It really was a great day.

Hope you all had a great Anzac Day.

  1. I've never been but I can imagine it's pretty inspiring. I never get beyond Anzac Biscuits. Good on you for making the effort.
