80th anniversary of the Siege of Tobruk
This month, we commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Siege of Tobruk. We reflect on the 8-month siege in which some 14,000 Australian troops served, earning their iconic nickname from the Germans.
Recognition of significant episodes in Australia's past holds enormous importance to those who have served. We've listed official days of commemoration and other dates that your community may wish to observe. See our special days of commemoration.
