Anzac Day action continues with two-up at George IV | photos

If there's two things that go hand in hand, they're Anzac Day and two-up.

And while the pandemic put paid to two-up celebrations in 2020, George IV Inn brought the once-a-year tradition back with a vengeance.

The Picton pub was abuzz with activity as the two-up event kicked off at 1pm.

With calls of "ready in the centre, get ready on the side", Mitchell Collins tossed the first few coins.

The George was this year raising funds for the Picton Anzac Day Committee, to ensure the shire's commemorations - which this year drew thousands of people to the streets at dawn - can continue to be a success into the future.

Revellers young and old took part in the time-honoured spot of gambling, while the adult contingent downed some cold ones.

Two-up was brought over to Australia by the English and Irish, originally called pitch and toss. It was a popular pastime with soldiers during WWI.

Anzac Day is the only day on the calendar pubs and clubs can legally hold the event.
