Each Anzac Day, the striking 21m high Mount Macedon Memorial Cross provides a spectacular, evocative setting for one of the largest dawn services in Victoria and will this year host a service with the theme ‘Honouring Every Role, Every Sacrifice’ to acknowledge the many different ways that Australians have, and continue to, serve and protect their country.

The service commences at 6.00am and runs for approximately an hour. Access to the Dawn Service is via bus only. Cameron Drive, Mount Macedon will be closed to all private vehicles including bicycles. 

People wishing to attend the Dawn Service are encouraged to book a seat on one of the free bus services that will operate from towns across the Macedon Ranges and Sunbury. Bookings can be made via or by phoning (03) 5422 1788.

Alternatively, a continuous shuttle bus service will also operate from Tony Clarke Reserve, Waterfalls Road, Macedon from 4:15am. Bookings are not required for this shuttle service. 

Attendees are encouraged to dress for the weather and bring a water bottle and torch. A sausage sizzle, tea and coffee will be available. A gold coin donation would be appreciated, or you can donate online at

MMADDS thanks its sponsors including the Victorian Government through Victorian Veterans Council, Macedon Ranges Shire Council, Bendigo Community Bank Gisborne and Region, Public Transport Victoria, Gisborne Region Events Activities & Tourism and KGMG Creative. Thanks also goes to the organisations that help the service come together and run smoothly on the day including CFA, SES, Victoria Police, Parks Victoria, Woodend Scouts, the Victorian Emergency Management Institute and the Mount Macedon Memorial Cross Reserve Committee of Management.
