The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Day Parade and Service commemorates the Battle of Long Tan, the most significant engagement by Australian Forces during the Vietnam War on 18 August 1966. Each year on the closest Sunday, Vietnam Veterans gather at the War Memorial for a commemorative service and wreath laying.

This year the event will start with the parade and service in Macquarie Road Springwood from 11am to 12.30pm. In the afternoon from 4pm to 4.45pm, proceedings continue with the Beating the Retreat Ceremony with Lithgow Pipe Band at the War Memorial.
