ANZAC Day Tributes at Historic Aussie Campgrounds

ANZAC Day Tributes at Historic Aussie Campgrounds

ANZAC Day holds a special place in the hearts of Australians and New Zealanders, commemorating the bravery and sacrifice of our servicemen and women. As we pay tribute to these trailblazers and diggers, what better way to honour their memory than by connecting with our history in the great outdoors? Bushwakka Australia invites you to embark on a journey to some of Australia's most historic campgrounds, where tales of courage and camaraderie echo through the wilderness.

Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway, New South Wales

Located in Concord, Sydney, the Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway offers a poignant tribute to the soldiers who fought along the treacherous Kokoda Trail during World War II. Take a reflective stroll along the track, adorned with informative plaques and stunning artwork, before setting up camp nearby. With Bushwakka's The Big Shack, you can immerse yourself in the spirit of the ANZACs while enjoying the comforts of modern outdoor living.

Gallipoli Barracks, Queensland

Nestled in Enoggera, Brisbane, Gallipoli Barracks serves as a fitting backdrop for ANZAC Day reflections. Join fellow campers for a dawn service at nearby ANZAC Square before retreating to the tranquil bushland surrounds. With Bushwakka's range of camping accessories, like The Bushrokka Chair, create a cosy campsite and share stories of courage around the flickering flames from your firepit.

Lone Pine Memorial, Australian Capital Territory

Situated within Canberra's Australian War Memorial, the Lone Pine Memorial stands as a symbol of remembrance for the ANZAC soldiers who fought at Gallipoli. After paying your respects at the memorial, venture to one of the nearby campgrounds, such as Cotter Campground or Woods Reserve.

The Desert Mounted Corps Memorial, Western Australia

Perched atop Mount Clarence in Albany, Western Australia, the Desert Mounted Corps Memorial overlooks the rugged coastline and serves as a poignant reminder of the ANZACs' bravery in the desert campaigns of World War I. Set up your camping spot with our Extreme 270 degree awning at a nearby campground, such as Two Peoples Bay Nature Reserve, and unwind after the day trip.

The National War Memorial, Australian Capital Territory

At Canberra's National War Memorial, the eternal flame burns in remembrance of Australia's fallen heroes. Nearby campgrounds, such as Namadgi National Park or Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, offer a serene setting to reflect on the day's events. 

As we gather to pay tribute to the trailblazers and diggers who have shaped our nation's history, let us also embrace the spirit of adventure and camaraderie that defines the Aussie camping experience. With Bushwakka by your side, every outdoor journey becomes an opportunity to honour the ANZACs and forge new memories amidst the beauty of our great land. Lest we forget.
