Kojonup Remembrance
100th Year commemoration
We have lots planned to commemorate the Anzac Centenary and tell “Kojonups story”. We need the help of the community and creative individuals to make these events a huge success. If you’re interested then please fill out the ‘How to be Involved’ section of the website or contact us directly.
In 1914 local Indigenous community members lived either in designated camping grounds or on settler’s farms feeding their families from bush foods, money earned by selling kangaroo and possum skins or by helping to clear the ever- decreasing bush areas that had been their home.   Kojonup’s young men were involved in military training, some going to Katanning to be part of

why we are holding these events

Between 2014 and 2018 Australia will commemorate the Anzac Centenary, marking the 100th year anniversary since the nation’s involvement in the First World War.   The First World War has become the focus of remembrance for all Australians who selflessly served their country and died during war, conflict, and peacekeeping operations. The spirit of Anzac, with its human qualities of sacrifice, courage and “mateship” endures and has meaning and relevance today and has become part of our sense of national identity.   Kojonup are holding a series of events to commemorate this anniversary that reflect “Our Story” as part of the link with 1914.   If you have an idea that you would like to share we would love to hear from you or if you would like more information then contact us today.
