Call Centre closed on Anzac Day

Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War, and is probably Australia's most important national occasion.

The MyNetFone Call Centre will be closed on Anzac Day, Wednesday 25 April 2012 to show respect to the servicemen and women who defend our country. The Call Centre will return to regular hours from Thursday 26th April.

What does Anzac mean?

ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The actions of the Australian and New Zealand forces during the Gallipoli campaign left us all a powerful legacy. The creation of what became known as the “ANZAC legend” became an important part of the identity of both nations, shaping the ways we view both our past and our future.

Today, Australians recognise 25 April as an occasion of national remembrance and celebrate it in two ways. Commemorative services are held at dawn across the nation, which is the time of the original landing. Later in the day, ex-servicemen and women meet to take part in marches through the major cities and in many smaller centres. Commemorative ceremonies are more formal and are held at war memorials around the country. In these ways, ANZAC Day is a time when Australians reflect on the many different meanings of war.
