Visitors to the Community Events page, including media outlets, can search for events by location and map view.

ANZAC House has developed posters and social media tiles to promote commemorative events. The event location and time information on the PDF posters can be edited to reflect local arrangements. If you require assistance to do this, please contact

The promotional material can be found in the sub-Branch Portal under Commemorations, Ceremonies and Events > ANZAC Day 2024.

Engaging with the veteran community  

There are two significant anniversaries that sub-Branches may want to consider incorporating into ANZAC Day commemorations and community engagement activities:

  • 110 years since the start of WWII
  • 25 years since the start of East Timor

Sub-Branch Office Bearers are encouraged to contact local veterans, and families of veterans, who served in WWII or the East Timor conflict to attend commemoration services.


RSL NSW is committed to fostering camaraderie and mateship amongst its members and the wider veteran community. To register and promote an ANZAC Day reunion on the RSL NSW website please complete this form.

Member Recruitment Toolkit

ANZAC Day presents a great opportunity to encourage the wider veteran community to join RSL NSW and connect with local sub-Branches. An initiative of the RSL NSW Strategic Plan, the Member Recruitment Toolkit includes a range of promotional recruitment resources, including social media tiles, for use by sub-Branches.


A selection of new tokens, including backing cards, is now available for purchase from the RSL NSW supplier. Our supplier is offering a charity discount on fundraising tokens to the RSL NSW sub-Branch network, including:

A limited number of free tokens, formerly owned by Welfare and Benevolent Institution (WBI), are still available to sub-Branches and can be ordered online. Any sub-Branch that places an order will be required to pay a small packing ($0.25 cents per token) and freight charge, however there is no charge for the tokens.
