Each year on 25 April, Sydneysiders take a moment to pay their respects to those who fought at Gallipoli in 1915. From dawn services right across the city to spending the day out on the harbour, these are just a few of the ways you can make the most of your Anzac Day this year.
If the sun is out, you can't go wrong with a Sunday spent amongst the trees. Bring your friends along for a trip to the Chinese Garden, the Royal National Park or head out of the city with an excursion to the Blue Mountains.
This wouldn't be a complete list of things to do in Sydney on Anzac Day if we didn't have some classic Australian water activities for you to delve into. Consider going out onto Sydney Harbour via kayak or even jet boat (for all you thrill-seekers).
If you managed to catch the dawn service, what better way to enjoy the rest of your day than seeing Sydney from a tourist point of view. Take your pick between a city to seaside bus tour, climbing inside a Harley Davidson or seeing the Opera House from the inside.
New to the city and want to tick off those all-important Sydney sights? Look no further than an attraction pass with access to Taronga Zoo, Madame Tussauds and Sydney Tower Eye.
From a relaxed hop-on, hop-off cruise around Sydney to closing this Anzac Day with a sunset sailing over the renowned harbour, climbing aboard a cruise on 25 April is a simple yet effective way to fill your itinerary.
Forget having to organise ingredients, cooking up a storm and then having to clean up. With an array of culinary experiences ranging from seafood to steakhouses, let someone else sort it out this Anzac Day.
Start off your day nice and early with a visit to your local dawn service this Anzac Day. This traditional service pays tribute to the brave troops who sacrificed their lives in Gallipoli.
Find places and times below. Keep in mind that these services are free but you do need to register to attend.
After a day spent exploring Sydney, return to the Cenotaph in Martin Place to take part in the Anzac Day sunset ceremony.
The itinerary includes a short service honouring those who have fallen which is accompanied by the NSW Ambulance Service Band and a lowering of the flags. This is the conclusion of Sydney's official Anzac Day commemorations.
The service begins at 5pm.
