Where to spend Anzac Day 2018

Got no plans this Anzac Day? Spend the day at one of these Sydney venues.

The Australian Heritage Hotel and The Glenmore Hotel, The Rocks
The Australian Heritage Hotel and The Glenmore Hotel in The Rocks team up to create arguably one of the best spots to commemorate ANZAC Day. From 6am, The Australian welcomes veterans, family and friends with a hearty BBQ breakfast. Cumberland Street is taken over and becomes the stage for a special performance by The Scots Marching Band while Gloucester Street turns into one of the largest two-up arenas in Sydney from 12pm. The Glenmore’s rooftop is the perfect spot to end the day with a cold one in hand and overlooking 180-degree views of Sydney harbour.
