ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as Anzacs, and the pride they took in that name endures to this day. ANZAC Day – 25 April – is probably Australia's most important national occasion. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War when the landed at Gallipoli, Turkey.
Anzac biscuits (or bikkies) have been associated with Anzac day as it is claimed the biscuits were sent by wives to soldiers because the ingredients do not spoil easily and the biscuits kept well during naval transportation. We love Anzac bikkies!
