A New Dawn – Mooloolaba’s Anzac Day 2022 Dawn Service Returns

Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club and The Surf Club Mooloolaba are honoured to announce its ANZAC Day Dawn Service will return on Monday 25th April 2022 at 5 am.

Following the last two year’s cancellations due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Committee is preparing for this year’s event to be one of its most significant. This year, the 2022 service is even more poignant as the Life Saving Club will celebrate its centenary.

MSLSC will welcome the local community to share in this emotional remembrance service in a moving tribute that acknowledges former and currently serving servicemen and women from Australia and New Zealand.

The ANZAC Day Dawn Service will include the traditional Last Post, with the Mooloolaba Surf Boats Raised Oar Salute during the one-minute silence. In a solemn and breathtaking symbolic act of remembrance, as the sun rises over the water, boat crews will paddle out, laying wreaths of native Australian flowers and then raise their oars to the haunting sounds of the Last Post.

The Last Post will be accompanied by a lone horseman from the 2nd Light Horse Regiment – Woombye Troop galloping along the beach. The ceremony also includes retired Defence Force veterans leading the ANZAC DAY ceremony and Ode, Sunshine Coast Grammar School Bel Canto Choir and a Didgeridoo solo performance by Mr. Peter Tilney.

Our New Zealand servicemen and women will be honoured with the Karanga (a Maori spiritual call of welcome uniting ancestors and the living) performed by Shelley Janssen. The service will also include a local Maori Haka and the New Zealand national anthem sung by Mr. Graham Stewart. The Nipper children of currently serving and ex-servicemen and women will lay the 12 wreaths representing Australia and New Zealand’s past campaigns, wars, peacekeeping missions and nurses.

The event will mark the 13th service held at Mooloolaba Beach, providing locals and visitors with an opportunity to honour and reflect on the sacrifices made by so many brave men and women. Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club has a proud history of support for its veteran members, including Vietnam and Young Veterans.

ANZAC Day Dawn Service at Mooloolaba Beach is on 25th April 2022 at 5 am.

The event is brought to you by Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club and The Surf Club, Mooloolaba Supporters Club.
