FULL LIST: Where to honour our Diggers on ANZAC Day

Commemorative ANZAC Day services will be in full swing this year in the Western Downs after 2020’s celebrations were hindered by coronavirus restrictions and lockdowns.

Western Downs communities are invited to honour the services of Australian and New Zealand men and women who have, and continue to, bravely defend our values and freedom as part of this year’s events.

Western Downs Regional Council will deliver services and events across the region on Sunday April 25, in partnership with dedicated local RSL sub branches and community groups.

Mayor Paul McVeigh encouraged residents, community groups and visitors to come together and take part in Anzac Day services happening across our region.

“Anzac Day services are an opportunity to support our communities and the people within them as we commemorate and contemplate the legacy of those who have bravely served our country, and those who never returned home,” Cr McVeigh said.

“We have a multitude of ceremonies happening across the region where residents and visitors can attend and pay their respects and have the opportunity to lay a wreath at a commemorative service.

“While it was so special to see our community band together and pay their respects from their driveways last year, it‘s wonderful to be able to proceed with services in 2021.

“On behalf of Council, I would like to thank local RSL sub branches and community groups for generously giving their time to help plan and co-ordinate this year’s services around the region.

ANZAC Commemorations are COVID safe, and anyone feeling unwell is reminded to stay home.
