Lest We Forget – Anzac Day events across Moreton Bay Region

More than a century has passed since the landing at Gallipoli in 1915 but the memory of those who served and died for their country continues to live on.

Across the Moreton Bay Region, services will be held by local RSL sub-branches and community organisations to mark Anzac Day on Thursday 25 April.

Council Spokesperson for Events and Ceremonies, Peter Flannery, said the spirit of the Anzacs burned brightly in the hearts of many Moreton Bay residents, not just those who have served, but also their descendants and loved ones.

“Anzac Day is our moment to pause and reflect on the countless sacrifices which have been made, and continue to be made, by our service personnel,” Cr Flannery said.

“We are privileged to live lives of freedom and opportunity here in Moreton Bay and Australia more broadly. It is their sacrifices which have granted us these privileges.

“I encourage every resident to make their way down to their local service and join the community in reflecting on the true meaning of Anzac Day.”

Anzac Day services will be held at Beachmere, Bray Park-Strathpine, Bribie Island, Burpengary, Caboolture-Morayfield, Dayboro, Deception Bay, Donnybrook, Gaythorne, Jolly’s Lookout, Kallangur, Mt Mee, Redcliffe, Samford, Toorbul, Wamuran, Woodford and Woody Point.
