More Information

Vietnam Veterans’ Day was originally known as Long Tan Day, chosen to commemorate the men of D Company, 6RAR who fought in the battle of Long Tan on August 18 1966.

Today 55 years later on Vietnam Veterans Day we pause and reflect on the bravery, teamwork and endurance that Australians displayed throughout the war.  It’s a day when we recognise all who served in Vietnam.   

Due to the current Public Health Order, the annual commemoration at the Cenotaph in Martin Place will not be held in 2021.

We encourage you to pause at home to remember and respect all those Australians that served during the Vietnam war; those who made the ultimate sacrifice; those who returned and were forever scarred; and those who cared for our veterans.
