Kangaroo March - Education & Music Initiatives

We are committed to delivering a memorable, respectful and educational experience; to continue the legacy of the Kangaroo March of 1915 and its surrounding events. We aspire to connect communities and generations with shared memories and meaningful stories; to evoke a sense of pride to be Australian and to acknowledge the importance of our history. We will remain true to our cause, bringing history to life with integrity and honour.

We aim to educate both adults and children of the historical events surrounding the March; to raise awareness of the sacrifices made by those that went before us in each rural community on the march route.

The Rural Commemorative Youth Choir is an initiative that has grown out of the Kangaroo March Re-encatment Project and is bringing history and music together to inspire and develop tomorrow's leaders. Music played an important role in families and communities in 1915 and so we want to encourage school and local choirs, bands, orchestras and local artists to participate as the re-enactment comes through town, just as they did 100 years ago.  

Please join us in the education and music inititaves as we re-enact the Kangaroo March to commemorate and remember those who fought in WW1 from your town and help to pass the baton to our children and continue the legacy and spirit of the Anzacs for generations to come.
