ANZAC DAY MARCH (City of Sydney)

The closure of George Street for the construction of the Light Rail System continues the change in the route and the assembley areas. The march starts in Elizabeth Street and proceeds south to Museum Station, turning left into Liverpool Street for dismissal.

Post WW2 Gunners will assemble near the corner of Bent & Phillip Streets. Depending on the turnout units will form up in Bent and Phillip Streets (on the Northern side of Bent St).

As the March commences, contingents will move from the forming up point along Phillip St, through the Hunter St intersection into Elizabeth St, then down to the March Start which is located at the Martin Place - Elizabeth St intersection. The Band Marshall will allocate bands that will join the column from the right at Martin Place. The March then proceeds down Elizabeth Street, veterans will be seated prior to St James Station. The Act of Remembrance 'Eyes Left' is adjacent to the ANZAC Memorial and will be marked with a banner for the paying of compliments.

The March ends at Liverpool Street where Marshalls will allocate either a turn left up Liverpool St or to continue down Elizabeth St to the dispersal Point.
