Anzac weekend in Perth

On the 2015 Anzac Centenary long weekend, Fremantle Press will participate in a three-day community event with free family activities designed to promote an understanding of the Anzac legacy.

At the Fremantle Press stand we’ll be helping children make their own semaphore flags and teaching them how to use them. »
