There are no current restrictions for ANZAC Day
Dress code and wearing of medals
As the ANZAC is an Act of Remembrance and Commemoration, dress should reflect the dignity of the occasion. Business attire is appropriate.
Veterans and serving personnel wear their decorations on the left chest. Many people choose to remember deceased relatives by wearing their medals. You are welcome and encouraged to wear your relative’s medals to ANZAC Day, however, please wear these on the right-hand side of your chest.
