Which roads to avoid on Anzac Day in the Central Highlands

Communities across the Central Highlands will stop to commemorate the Anzacs on April 25, with services and marches being held across the region.

“Not only do we remember the anniversary of the landing in Gallipoli in 1915, but we also remember those who have served and died in all wars,” A Central Highlands Regional Council spokesman said.

“The spirit of Anzac, with its qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity.

“On Anzac Day, ceremonies will be held in towns across our region to acknowledge the service of our veterans.”

In line with Queensland Health guidelines, anyone participating in a march will be required to sign in. Please check directly with event organisers for instructions on how to do this.

Social distancing of 1.5m must be practised and if you are unwell please pay your respects from home.

See the full list of ceremonies and marches being held across the region, as well as a full list of road closures. Drivers have been urged to drive to conditions and rework the route if driving around the ceremonies towns on April 25.
