This Saturday 25 April is Anzac Day public holiday. Young’s Bus Service will be operating on a Sunday timetable for Route 20 (Capricorn Coast) services only.
Due to COVID19 restrictions, Young’s Bus Service will not be providing free travel to war veterans in uniform and their families as there will be no dawn services.
Why not hold your own driveway service? Australian RSL’s are encouraging everyone to go outside and “Light up the Dawn” with your own driveway service. It can be on your veranda or beside your letterbox. Tune into the National Commemorative Service at 5.30am AEST. Click here to view the live stream.
“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.”
Anzac Day 2020 falls on a Saturday, which means for most Australians, there will be no extra public holiday this year.
