The Anzac Day Bundaberg Civic Service will proceed in Anzac Park as part of this year's commemorations, with Covid-19 restrictions in place to ensure the safety of those in attendance.
Bundaberg Region Mayor Jack Dempsey said he was thankful the event could take place following last year's event cancellations Australia-wide.
“While Anzac Day is a solemn occasion to reflect and remember those who served, this year offers hope of camaraderie which was sadly missing in 2020,” he said.
“During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic last year, it was understandable but devastating that traditional Anzac Day services had to be cancelled.”
Mayor Jack Dempsey said this year, the Anzac Day Bundaberg Civic Service would be held in Anzac Park at 8.30am.
“The community will still be able to participate in the commemorations including wreath laying,” he said.
“There will be the allocation of more space this year, allowing spectators to utilise a larger standing area at the pool.”
Mayor Dempsey said Council had also contracted flypasts of a Trojan T-28B, which would occur throughout the region on the day as a fitting tribute to honour the men and women who served Australia.
“Anzac Day is a time to come together, to take a moment to reflect on those who have fought for us,” he said.
“It's a time to remember the past while we hope and pray for peace tomorrow.”
Regional services are also scheduled to occur across the region on Anzac Day in areas including Childers, Woodgate, Gin Gin, Bargara and more.
