Where to play two-up around Australia

Where to play two-up around Australia

Industry punters looking to try their luck while paying homage to those who served in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations this Anzac Day, look no further.

With today being the only day of the year where it’s legal to play two-up, why not follow up your dawn service with a punt or two?

Lucky for you, Finder has put together a list of all the best venues where you can drop in for a game or two:

The Argyle, The Rocks 

Right where the Anzac Day Parade ends is where you’ll head to have a drink afterwards. The Argyle is opening its doors early, so there’s no hanging around. Two fires in the courtyard will keep you toasty and an all-out Aussie BBQ to keep your belly full.
