WHERE TO PLAY TWO-UP THIS ANZAC DAY
Come in spinner! ANZAC Day commemorations are back to full scale in 2022 and bigger than ever as two-up can legally be played each day of the ANZAC Day long weekend.
Solotel’s venues are proud to honour our service men and women and host two-up across the below venues. Venues will have two-up played all weekend however, Monday 25 April is by far the largest of the three days with a raft of events ranging from drag queen two-up and Aussie BBQ specials. Opera Bar is the only exception – two-up will only be played on Monday 25 April.
All venues will also help to raise funds for Legacy Australia which support the partners and children of those who gave their lives or their health in service for our country.
