The Dawn Service on ANZAC Day has become a special tradition in Senggigi, held every year on 25 April.
This year, La Chill Bar hosted the Dawn Service which included an address by Malcolm Sinclair, flag-raising by Nusa Alam students and one minute’s silence in memory of those who lost their lives in the war.
The simple commemorative ceremony was followed by a sausage sizzle breakfast, where old and young alike reflected on the meaning of the day.

ANZAC Day takes place every year on 25 April. The term ‘ANZAC’ stands for ‘Australian and New Zealand Army Corps’.
Each year, Australians and New Zealanders living in Lombok hold a Dawn Service to remember and honour the men and women who served in wars to defend a way of life; and especially those who gave their lives in the fight.
