After reduced services last year due to COVID, Douglas Shire is now preparing to remember the fallen at traditional ANZAC Day services on Sunday 25 April.
The 106th Anniversary of Anzac Day will start with a dawn service at the Mossman Cenotaph on Front St at 5.15am, with official proceedings from 5.25am.
In Port Douglas, people will gather at Port Village in Macrossan Street from 10am and begin the march towards the cenotaph at 10:15 am.
Official proceedings begin at the cenotaph at 10:30 am.
Douglas Shire Mayor Michael Kerr said he was looking forward to seeing a strong attendance at Anzac Day activities this year.
“Given everything that has happened in the past 12 months, I think the commemorations next month will be extra special for our community,” he said.
Dignitaries from the Mossman RSL, the clergy and Douglas Shire Council will be present.
School groups, community groups and sporting clubs are welcome to attend but we request that you be mindful of space at the cenotaph and the space required for each group.
