Red Cross in Australia will celebrate its Centenary Year in 2014 having been formed at Government House, Melbourne on 13 August 1914, exactly nine days after the outbreak of World War I. The celebrations to mark this anniversary provide an opportunity to thank all Australian to their contributions to the first 100 years of Red Cross in Australia.
