ANZAC DAY: See list of all services and marches in CQ

This year Rockhampton's traditional ANZAC Day march will take a new route through the CBD with the Civic Ceremony also changing location to Rod Laver Plaza on the Riverside.

The parade will commence at its usual starting point at Archer and Alma Street by 9am, and will run down East Street to William Street and on to Quay Street, followed by the Civic Ceremony at 11am.

Rockhampton Region Mayor Margaret Strelow said the new location for the Civic Ceremony, previously held at the front of City Hall, provides an inviting and easily accessible area with plenty of seating and space for attendees and spectators.

"After many years of holding the Civic Ceremony at the front of City Hall, we will be relocating the ceremony to the beautiful Riverside as we honour the servicemen and women of our country on this important occasion,” Mayor Strelow said.

"Our city has a very long and proud tradition of celebrating ANZAC day, particularly as we were the first city in the country to hold a Dawn Service in 1916.

"It's always a very special day seeing our veterans, families and school children fill our city streets for the march, and those who cheer them on waving our great Australian flag, all to commemorate those you paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

"Services will also be held across the region in Mount Morgan, Alton Downs, Gracemere, Westwood, Marmor, and Bouldercombe.”
