Preparations are well under way to mark ANZAC Day on Wednesday 25 Apr 2018, the 104th year since the Gallipoli landing. The Dawn Service will commence with the Sunshine Coast Youth Band providing music from 5.15am. Local Cadet Units will slow march the flags through an Honour Guard to the flag poles at 5.20am, in time for the Service to commence at 5.28am.

The Service will consist of an opening address, Prayers, Hymns, Guest Speaker, Laying of Wreaths, and National Anthems, and is expected to be completed by 6.00am. The traditional gunfire breakfast will be served in the RSL Services Club from 6.30am to 8am.

Participants in the Citizens March to the RSL are asked to assemble in the Stockland Shopping Centre carpark at 8.30am. The march, via Oval Ave, Arthur St and Third Ave, will commence at 9.00am, and will be followed by a short wreath laying service in the RSL Memorial Garden for those not included in the Dawn Service.

Both the Caloundra RSL and Translink will be running a free shuttle bus service between Currimundi Market Place, Dicky Beach Carpark, Stockland Carpark, and the RSL carpark between 4am and 5am, and returning after the Dawn Service. This will help alleviate parking and access problems at King’s Beach.
