Currumbin RSL ANZAC Day Dawn Service

Currumbin RSL Dawn Service will return to Elephant Rock on Currumbin Beach on April 25, 2023. The march will commence at 4.35am with the dawn service to follow at 5am. We are expecting this year that the community will turn out in large numbers. Channel 7 Sunrise will be broadcasting the Dawn Service LIVE. Or alternatively, we’d love to see you attend our mid-morning service at the club’s cenotaph.
