People across the Bundaberg Region found innovative ways to show their respect on Anzac Day while observing COVID-19 restrictions.
Hundreds of people stood at their driveways on sunrise to “light up the dawn“, silently showing respect, while Michelle Cocking and her family utilised a fence to present their own Anzac Day message.
Michelle, who operates a real estate business at Woodgate Beach, said Anzac Day remained an iconic occasion for all Australians and she was happy she and her family were able to provide a personal message of remembrance.
The drawing featuring a soldier in silhouette and poppies and the words “Lest We Forget” is located at the end of Pine Court off Sixth Avenue.
Australian flags fluttering in the sea breeze are a fairly common sight along the Woodgate Beach Esplanade as locals placed their meaningful support via this national emblem.
Posters based on local soldiers
In Childers, the Years Two and Three students from Childers State School produced posters based on the soldiers featured in the local Hall of Memories.
School principal Robyn Philpott said the students had provided a unique perspective of each soldier they drew, and they had a personal understanding of what the soldier had achieved and the significance of Anzac Day.
