Currumbin RSL Dawn Service will return to Elephant Rock on Currumbin Beach on Thursday April 25, 2024.

Set against the breathtaking backdrop of Elephant Rock on Currumbin Beach, the Currumbin RSL Dawn Service, considered the largest regional dawn service in Australia, returns on Thursday, April 25, 2024. This annual commemoration is a heartfelt tribute to the ANZACs, as well as a solemn acknowledgment of the valiant men and women who have served in all wars, conflicts, peacekeeping missions and those still serving today. Beyond honouring the collective sacrifices, this day unfolds as a poignant narrative, delving into the personal stories of service personnel across the spectrum of past and modern conflicts. Thousands will be in attendance, standing side by side, as we join together in this reverent observance to pay respects and intimately explore the experiences that shape the legacy of our brave servicemen and women.

The march will commence at 4:35am, leading the way to the solemn dawn service at 5am. In a significant testament to the importance of this event, Channel 7 Sunrise will be broadcasting the Dawn Service Live Nationwide & Internationally and local radio station Triple M 92.5 will also be live broadcasting, bringing the solemnity and reverence of the occasion to a broader audience.

Alternatively, for a more intimate connection, we extend a heartfelt invitation to join us at our mid-morning service by the club’s cenotaph. Your presence at either event would be a cherished addition to this day of reflection and commemoration.
