Victory in the Pacific Day (VP Day) commemorates the cessation of hostilities in the Second World War, 15 August 1945.  76 years later we gather to remember and respect all those Australians that served during the Second World War; those who gave the ultimate sacrifice; those who returned and were forever scarred; and those who cared for our veterans 

This commemoration is open to the public to attend. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we ask that you please register your interest to attend via email stating your name and best contact number to
