The Kelvin Club is a private club tucked away in the middle of Melbourne.
First established in 1865, it has been on this site in Melbourne Place since 1924.
It has a billiards room, fine dining, extensively stocked bar and a function room upstairs were the Infantry Victoria Dinner is held each year. The feel of the Club is traditional gentlemen's club (women were only allowed to join as of 1997) meets hunting lodge and general's office. Be sure to salute the Queen – naturally her portrait hangs on the wall along with other military photos of interest.

ANZAC Day Commemorative Ceremony
25th April 2020
This Anzac Day, we call on you to #standto to honour the service of Australia’s defence forces, past and present. From your driveway, balcony, or within your home, let us all 'stand to' in shared reflection at 6am. The meaning of this important day endures as we #lightupthedawn with our Anzac spirit.
As you #standto we will be continuing in our unbroken tradition of laying a wreath to honour the service and sacrifice of so many. Join us virtually on Saturday 25 April as our live stream takes you into the heart of Shrine, the Sanctuary, to bring you the 2020 Dawn Service from 5.50am. This year’s Dawn Service is held behind closed doors but is open to all. Our live streamed service will ensure that all who serve, past and present, will never be forgotten.
Join our live stream event and #standto for our Anzacs.
On ANZAC Morning some radio stations will broadcast the War Memorial service starting at 05:30.
If you fly the Australian flag at your place, make sure you observe flag protocol.
