18 - 19 May
The Emu Gully Air and Land Spectacular is the largest and most accurate re-enactment of ANZAC history in Australia.
The re-creation of Anzac military battles features action both on the land and in the skies overhead. The re-enactments take our Anzac stories, from WW1, WW2, Vietnam and more, out of the history books, bringing them to life on a spectacular scale.... more
While ground troops fight from trenches and tanks, war birds drop special effects explosions overhead. The authentic battle scenes feature Australia's largest collection of operating military vehicles rumbling to life again! Featuring joy rides on military vehicles, ""Animals that Went to War"" nursery, ""boogie-woogie"" WW2 style tunes and more.
The event is not about glorifying war, but about educating younger generations about Australia's military history. It aims to communicate and inspire, now and into the future, the spirit of the ANZAC values of sacrifice, mateship, courage and perseverance.... less
Excellent ANZAC education for children, including joy rides in military vehicles, other military themed rides and an Animals that Went to War Nursery.
The site may be navigated by persons with a disability, however the grounds has extensive unsealed surfaces.
There are no refunds available for non attendance. Consideration may be given for a credit for the following year's event should the event be cancelled due to adverse weather.
The Andrew Sisters Tribute Band provides another highlight, as do the military bands. There are rides for the kids, an 'animals that went to war nursery' and much more, that together provide an educational, inspirational and highly entertaining event.
Tips: bring a hat, sunscreen and consider bringing a folding chair for your comfort if desired (chair seating is limited).
They encourage you to bring a hat and sunscreen as no shade is available while viewing the major re-enactment scenes. If practical for you they also suggest bringing a light weight folding chair. Limited seating is available.
