ANZAC Day is probably Australia’s most important national commemoration. Ninety years ago Australian and New Zealand forces together began their first major military battle. Australia itself was a very young nation and it was fighting against a foreign army half way around the world in a place called Gallipoli. In a moment we’ll hear what it was like to be there, but first, lets find out about some of the basics.
Anzac stands for Australia New Zealand Army Corps.
130000 people were killed on 2 sides including 11000 anzacs.
‘The Last Post’ is always played on Anzac day traditionally.
I understand it was tough to battle.
I understand many people died.

This day is the day we respect all the people who served and died in the war, they did not die for anyone other than us so we should thank them. Lest We Forget.

On Tuesday morning, Australia’s population will officially tick over 24 million people. It’s a big milestone so we thought we’d use the occasion to find out how Australia’s population has grown in the past and whether it will continue to grow into the future.
We reached 24 million Australians on the 16th of May 2016.
As of writing this Australia has a population of 24,592,360.
We will have 35 million people in Australia by 2035.
Why don’t we just appreciate this moment and not get worried about it? You know china has 1,388,232,693 people living on it!
