63% of those aged 55+ said they would be attending an event or watching on TV compared to 40% of those aged under 35. 36% of those aged under 35 say it is just a public holiday and 13% said they would be working.

(Last year’s question was asked over the Anzac weekend, so is not strictly comparable – the “don’t knows” are lower as some respondents completed the survey after Anzac Day.)
