On ANZAC Day 2018 we are moving the Dawn Service to Brennen Park Bongaree on the Pumicestone passage side of the island.
In previous years the service has been held at the Woorim Beach car park.
That site is now no longer satisfactory owning to traffic/parking problems or to accommodate the 1000 plus who attend the dawn service to pay their respects to our fallen and serving members.
The service will still commence at 0428 hours as per previous years.
Brennen Park is located on the Pumicestone passage side of the island just after the Bribie Island Jetty and the local take away known as Scoopy's.
There is ample parking in the area and parking will be allocated for disabled parking adjacent to Brennen Park controlled by the SES.
For further information please contact the Bribie Island RSL Sub Branch on (07) 34080450 office hours from - midday to .
I have been asked to contact the remaining RSL Qld Districts on behalf of the President South Eastern District to consider the Brisbane Anzac Day Combined Committee’s invitation to any World War II veteran already in the Brisbane area on Anzac Day, who would like to take up an opportunity to sit in the Veterans Tent, situated alongside the Saluting Dais on King George Square, to view the 2018 Parade.
Names and addresses would need to be supplied to this office by 30 March for the issue of invitations, along with details of a carer/responsible adult who can also take a seat in the Veterans Tent where required. The invitation card is required to access the secure cordon around the Saluting Dais. Ideally, a short bio for any veteran would also enable the ABC to conduct interviews with any individual willing to participate in the Anzac Day parade coverage. Unfortunately, no accommodation or travel expenses can be provided.
Parking can be booked in advance within Roma Street car park for access to King George Square at $5 public holiday rate.
Additionally, where veterans are not a member of a participating Ex-Service Association or do not wish to take a seat in the Veterans Tent, the attached form can be submitted to make use of the Military Jeep/Golf Buggy transport service in Elizabeth Street to participate in the event.
Your assistance in this matter is appreciated. If you have any further enquiries please do not hesitate to contact this office.
