Remarks - Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience Official Reception
As Anzac Day approaches, we remember and honour the sacrifices that have kept us free.
A high price indeed paid for our freedom, paid in young lives lost far from home.
We do not glorify war - Anzac Day is not the anniversary of a great victory.
But it commemorates the triumph of the human spirit, the patriotism, the sacrifice, the courage, the endurance, the mateship.
