The hamlet of Anzac is on the western shore of Willow Lake in the southern region of the Municipality and is in close proximity to Gregoire Lake Provincial Park. Located approximately 45 kilometres southeast of Fort McMurray, Anzac can be accessed from Alberta Highways 63 and 881.

Originally named after Willow Lake, the community was mostly inhabited by non-status Indians. Colonialized in 1917 as a stopping point on the Alberta Great Waterways Railway Line, Anzac was named after the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps that surveyed the area during World War I.

According to the 2015 census, there are 763 residents currently living in Anzac. Community services include a volunteer fire department, a community meeting hall, several outdoor recreational facilities and the Anzac Community School.
