Poppies for Anzac Day Currumbin Beach


Thousands of poppies flow from the top of Elephant Rock, Currumbin, like (sadly) a river of blood. They represent soldiers lost during Gallipoli where they fought, often with fields of poppies nearby. Each poppy attached to the shark net over the rock has been handmade by local school children using recycled materials. This artistic display will feature on Saturday morning when we rise early for a very special Anzac Day ceremony one hundred years on from that first landing in Gallipoli.

I’ll be posting photos from the dawn service in the following weeks. If you have a chance to get down to the Currumbin Service you’ll find details at:

Currumbin RSL Anzac Day 2015 I’ve been attending for years and there is no more moving, emotional, inspirational service than the one at Currumbin.

Feel free to comment, thank you.
