The annual commemoration of our past and present veterans, ANZAC Day on April 25, has been massively restricted this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.
ANZAC Day services across SA & NT have been cancelled or heavily restricted, with the public asked not to attend.
Today the RSL have encouraged the public to pay respects in their own way from home. Whether that be within your home or heading to the end of your driveway, the initiative is to ‘Light Up The Dawn’.
Other ways that you can commemorate are outlined on RSL’s website.
- Light Up the Dawn commemoration from your own driveway, with neighbours and the RSL
- Remembering from within your home with Light Up the Dawn, media broadcasts and online coverage
- Visiting a local war memorial at any time of the day, within exercise/recreation and social distancing conditions
- Visit Virtual War Memorial Australia. Register and contribute pictures and information on your relatives who served Australia on active service.
