Be respectful and prepared this ANZAC Day. Know your obligations.

Returned Servicemen and women, carrying Australian National flags taking part in an ANZAC Day march

Monday 25 April 2016 is the anniversary of Australia and New Zealand’s military action in World War I. We honour the sacrifice, suffering and contribution of all Australians who have served and died in war, conflict, and peacekeeping operations.

Licensees: trading hours restricted

Late night trading venues such as nightclubs, pubs and bars across Victoria that would normally trade between 3am and midday must cease the supply of liquor at 3am on ANZAC Day. This restriction achieves a balance between the commercial interests of the industry and community expectations.

Applications for temporary limited licences and major event licences for ANZAC Day will still be considered if the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) is satisfied that the supply of alcohol is in connection with commemorative activities and will be consistent with the solemn observance of the day. Your application should include a letter of support from your local Returned and Services League club or sub-branch.

Visit the temporary licences page for details on how to apply.

Returned and Services League (RSL) clubs: Check your liquor licence

Generally, RSLs are exempt from the restriction on the supply of liquor on licensed premises. However, some RSL liquor licences may state specific trading hours that restrict the supply of liquor on ANZAC Day. 

Don’t risk a fine. All RSLs clubs and sub-branches should check their liquor licence carefully and confirm the licence states they may supply liquor before midday.

If an RSL’s licence does not permit the supply of liquor prior to midday on ANZAC day, and that club wishes to supply liquor as part of a commemorative event, such as a gunfire breakfast, they must apply for a temporary limited licence. Applications can be lodged online.

RSL clubs or sub-branches unsure if they can trade before midday may contact the VCGLR on 1300 182 457 for further information specific to their circumstances.

Two up

Two up may be played at RSL clubs, sub-branches, or any venue used by the RSL for a commemorative event.

The Victorian State Branch approves all RSL club and sub-branch applications to play two up. This includes two up games on ANZAC Day itself and commemorative functions seven days prior to ANZAC Day.

Contact Jude Beshears on (03) 9655 5517 to apply for permission to play two up.
