City Hall will light up with images of Anzac troops next week in remembrance of Australians who served and lost their lives in World War I.

Projections of photos, paintings and monuments will be displayed on the municipal building from 4am on Anzac Day (Thursday, April 25), running from dusk to 11pm each day until Sunday, April 28.

The projections, created by Ian de Gruchy and Olaf Meyer and produced by Multimedia Events, include vision of soldiers and nurses during WWI, First Nations soldiers, the WWI honour roll, women and volunteers troops and recent photos taken by Mr de Gruchy at Gallipoli.

Mayor Trent Sullivan said ANZAC Day was a time to acknowledge Australians who have served in all wars.

“Australians from a range of backgrounds and ages, including women and First Peoples, have served their country and displayed courage, endurance, care and mateship – the ANZAC Spirit,” Mayor Sullivan said.

“The City Hall projections are a chance for community members to pause and reflect on what our defence personnel have given us and the impacts experienced by the families left behind.

“We are grateful for the sacrifices of our ANZAC troops and service men and women.”

Councillor Elise Wilkinson said the projections were well worth a visit.

“The projections are a moving tribute that tell the story of mateship, the human impact of war and the Aussie spirit,” Cr Wilkinson said.

“There are many ways to show veterans your support this ANZAC Day, such as attending a dawn service, buying a poppy from the RSL or talking to your children about the day’s meaning.”
