Where to remember – Anzac Day 2010

By peturbed_but_pretty 21 April 2010 5

Having not spent an Anzac Day in Canberra for some time, I was recently very upset to hear that the RSL in town has closed down.  Not only is this an awful reflection on the nation’s capital, but leaves me at a loss of where to go for a Gunner’s breakfast pre-dawn service, and two-up post-dawn service.

Can anyone tell me where the diggers go to now?

The Australian on City Walk has $10 breakfast from 8am, Two Up from 10am, live footy on the big screens and anyone wearing medals gets 50% off all food and drink throughout the day!

Olims mate. Full of serving, and ex serving servicemen and women. great two up as well, although it does take a while to get a drink.

And you can be down there in 5 minutes after you’ve marched 🙂

Or head over to the Irish club, the guy running the two is a mate of mine and a good bloke to boot. He’ll be sure to run a good show.

Also, the little services club over at manuka. Great atmosphere..

From recollection the Ainslie Footballl Club used to offer breakfast after the dawn service and two-up throughout the day – reasonably convenient to the War Memorial too. You could also contact the Manuka RSL which is still going strong (and I might add an excellent place to stop for a beer anytime of the year).

As far as the closure of the RSL in Civic I believe that your grossly over-cooking it to suggest that its closure is somehow a reflection on the wider Canberra community. Given the membership requirements for clubs in the ACT (including RSL clubs) it would be more accurate – if you had to cast aspersions at all – to say that it reflected poorly on the membership of the club who evidently failed to patronise it enough for it to survive.
