Nowra RSL Sub-Branch secretary Debby Rayner said it is an important anniversary that will be marked by a "very short service".
"It is just about marking the day with a short commemoration," she said."
Victory in the Pacific Day - or 'VP Day' - is commemorated across Australia and the world, the anniversary of the day World War II ended. A date many will never forget.
On August 15, 1945, Japan accepted the Allied Nations' terms of surrender and Australia's Prime Minister, Ben Chifley, announced that the war was over.
