City hall will be used to pay tribute to the 109th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, with projections to be displayed on the buildings facade next week.

Images including photography, paintings and monuments, will be projected onto the hall each night from Anzac Day until the following Sunday.

Council said the images will be used to tell the story of those who have served the nation and will include images of indigenous soldiers and their service in World War 1.

Mayor Trent Sullivan said the projections are a chance to reflect on what defence personnel have given and the impacts experienced by those left behind.

“Anzac Day is a time to acknowledge not only the soldiers and nurses who served during World War 1, but Australians who have served in all wars,” he said.

“Australians from a range of backgrounds and ages, including women and First Peoples, have served their country and displayed courage, endurance, care and mateship – the ANZAC Spirit.

“We are grateful for the sacrifices of our ANZAC troops and service men and women.”
