Remembering the Coloured Diggers

The Redfern Aboriginal Anzac Day commemoration is held each year by Redfern’s Aboriginal community to honour more than a century of service by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander servicemen and servicewomen dating back to the Boer War.

The afternoon began with a welcome to country and memorial wreath laying at the Cenotaph, before a community march along Chalmers Street led by Aboriginal dancers. The march ended with an afternoon of dance and music at Prince Alfred Park.

The bravery of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women is proudly recognised, respected and honoured by the families and the communities they represented.

Respect is also paid to the women and other family members who kept families and communities together while loved ones were away.
