This Tuesday 25 April is the Anzac Day public holiday. Young’s Bus Service will be operating on a Sunday timetable for Route 20 (Capricorn Coast) services only.
Young’s Bus Service will honour free travel to war veterans in uniform and their families attending dawn services in Rockhampton and the Capricorn Coast. We are now extending our free travel to children participating in official proceedings wearing an official uniform representing Scouts, Girl Guides and military associations.
We encourage everyone to attend the Anzac Day Service at Emu Park. The Dawn Service will commence at 5.00am.
Parade to step off at 9am from outside the Pine Beach Hotel Main service to commence on completion of march.
“Anzac Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day on which we remember all Australians who served and died in war and on operational service. The spirit of Anzac, with its qualities of courage, mate ship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity.”
