Each year on this day Australians pause to remember those who fought and died for Australia's cause in all wars and armed conflicts.
The Australian War Memorial hosts the nation's key commemoration with the Remembrance Day National Ceremony beginning at 10.30am
Remembrance Day has a special significance in 2018 as it marks the 100th anniversary of the Armistice which ended the First World War (1914–18). On 11 November 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after four years of continuous warfare. With their armies retreating and close to collapse, German leaders signed an Armistice, bringing to an end the First World War.
