Yes, 'paying your respects' by using the day as an opportunity to raise revenue with your sneaky as Parking Inspectors. We attended the Evening Service at 5pm at the Cenotaph at which time the City was largely empty, thought we had parked legally (it's impossible to interpret the multiple signs sitting one above the other each with it's own set of rules) and copped a $220 fine. Our car was parked for the duration of the half hour service and approximately 10 minutes either side, so say 50 minutes all up. What a disgrace you are on our National Day of Remembrance. Hitting families who are paying their respects where it hurts the most.

I can't wait for that massive water fountain to be completed. I just wish they allowed more pedestrian space in front of it for disabled people and those who are waiting for busses. Also for pedestrians walking by. I am saying this because I think that the commuters are just as important as the nice fountain. Just a little oversight by council that can always get fixed later...I think.

My take on the remembrance of those brave soldiers during today's Anzac March in Sydney #wewillrememberthem #lestweforget

No ANZAC Biscuits at Gallipoli.

The origins of that great Australian institution the ANZAC biscuit are unknown and they were not in soldiers’ rations during the Great War, says academic Dr Matthew Bailey.

There was, however, a biscuit based on rolled oats, sugar, flour and butter that was popular at the time. Its magic ingredient was golden syrup which replaced eggs as the binding agent. This produced not only a tasty and nutritious biscuit but one that could last a long time.

Some families may have sent the treat to their loved ones abroad, but it was not until after the war that these biscuits gained the moniker “ANZAC” and began to be commercially made. Since that time Australian troops abroad have enjoyed ANZAC biscuits, either in ration packs or courtesy of parcels from home.

We should also remember that like pavlova and Russell Crowe, New Zealanders also make a claim for the ANZAC Biscuit!

Last week we had some even younger than usual scientists on campus🔬

Year 11 and 12 students dissected worms, extracted weird and wonderful chemicals from plants and saw a racecar built from scratch by engineering students during the University’s Tasmanian Youth Science Forum.
