Bundaberg Regional Council will stream an Anzac Day video tribute online to honour the Anzac tradition and enable residents to pay their respects.
Chief executive Steve Johnston said Council staff would produce a 20-30 minute Anzac Day video with local content to broadcast on social media channels.
“Our events team organise Anzac ceremonies across the Bundaberg Region, and like many people, they were disappointed with the cancellation due to Coronavirus,” he said.
“They’re now working with Council’s communications department to source and produce engaging, relevant material for a video.
“This will include interviews with veterans, hymns, historical footage, official messages and the playing of the Last Post.”
Mr Johnston said watching the video on 25 April will be a way for people to gather in a virtual sense, reflect and remember those who served and those who made the supreme sacrifice.
“A quality production of the type envisaged would normally cost more than $20,000 to produce and screen,” he said.
“It will be done at zero cost using staff resources and Bundaberg Now.”
More details about the Anzac Day video will be provided closer to 25 April.
