Full list of Anzac Day services in Rocky region
EVENTS will be held across the region on Wednesday as Central Queenslanders gather to commemorate ANZAC Day.
ANZAC Committee Chair Councillor Rose Swadling said it was wonderful the events, which were organised by council and the community, meant everybody would be able to pay their respects to veterans.
"The range of events is testament to just how much our community values the sacrifices made by our armed forces, whether they served 100 years ago or are on active duty today.
"Local businesses and volunteers have also gone the extra mile to make sure our veterans and residents can make the events: the CQ Military Jeep Club and Yellow Cabs Rockhampton are providing free transport to veterans to and during the March, and Sunbus are putting on a free bus for all those who wish to attend the Botanical Gardens Dawn Service.
"Although it is a sad day in many ways, I am looking forward to our whole Region coming together and commemorating those who gave their lives to ensure our freedoms."
