Numbers of new cases and death due to COVID-19 in Australia have been dropping, still, it was suggested that folk stay home on April 25 this year.

Though isolation and social distancing rules are in place, many felt it important to pay their respects on ANZAC Day morning at dawn services around the country.

Dozens of people gathered observing social distancing at the Brunswick Gates of Remembrance where the broadcast from the Canberra War Memorial service was played this morning.

    ANZAC DAY brought the people out of their houses to their drive-ways and to the street in reduced numbers without a march because of Covid-19 while the official virus case and death numbers are reducing, this infamous day of April 25 is still held in high esteem as uniquely Australian.
    When Government isolation and social distancing rules are still in place, many Australians from sunrise to midday to sunset honoured the sacrifice past sons and daughters paid with their lives to the sounds of the bugle and the Last Post.
