2010 Anzac Day in Nerang

As one of the Gold Coast’s oldest suburbs it comes as no surprise that many Nerang residents were members of the Anzac’s that we so proudly honour as part of Anzac Day.  You can find out a little bit more these brave Nerang residents here.

Anzac Day is a day to remember these soldiers along with all other veterans and those in the service of our country. The best place to do that this coming Anzac Day is at the Nerang RSL which is located just around the corner from First National Nerang.

The aim of the Nerang RSL ANZAC Day March is to give the participating veterans, service men & women and the general public an opportunity to honour those who served in the defence of Australia or its interest, especially remembering those who paid the supreme sacrifice or otherwise suffered as a result of their service.
