Spirits of the Red Sand invites you to honour ANZAC day our unique way – with a celebration of the Australian, Aboriginal, Kiwi and Māori that came together in the name of freedom. Co-owned by Aboriginal and Māori owners, Spirits of the Red Sand looks forward to celebrating with you the mateship that is the spirit of ANZAC and the unity that the day brings.
