This decision has not been taken lightly for Katherine Town Council and the Katherine RSL Sub-Branch however, this is in the best interest and wellbeing of our ageing veterans and the community at large. ANZAC Day is no less important this year.

Although we won’t be commemorating the fallen this ANZAC Day in an official service, we will always remember the dedication, commitment and sacrifice of our Defence Forces, past and present.
