On Sundays the market becomes 'Rusty's Bazaar' and the range of bric-a-brac and arts and crafts is even greater.

Rusty's Markets were named after the late Emrys 'Rusty' Rees, who was responsible for the development of the market into the superb event that it is nowadays. Save some of your time to enjoy a shopping experience in a carnival like environment.

  (Nationwide) Anzac Day
Anzac Day, which stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, commemorates the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. Those soldiers became referred to as ANZACs. Anzac Day is probably Australia?s most important national occasion.

The Anzac tradition began in 1915, near Gallipoli, in Turkey. Due to a navigational error, the ANZACs landed about a mile north of the intended point and, instead of finding a beach and gentle slope, they found themselves at the bottom of abrupt cliffs, making it difficult to fight the Turkish forces. After eight months of crude fighting, the ANZACs left, leaving behind more than 8,000 Australians dead.

The services and events happen all over the country. The day starts with the ?Dawn Service?, usually held at war memorials around Australia. Often, the fourth stanza of Laurence Binyan?s poem For the Fallen (known as the Ode of Remembrance) is often recited.

Ode:

With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
England mourns for her dead across the sea.
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of spirit,
Fallen in the cause of the free.

Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres.
There is music in the midst of desolation
And a glory that shines upon our tears.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

They mingle not with laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England?s foam.

But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
As the stars are known to the Night;

As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain,
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.
