Anzac Day 2019
Anzac Day Services on the peninsula are seeing more and more people attending every year, and although all our original Anzacs are now gone, their legacy lives on.

Redcliffe will again play host to commemorative services on Thursday, 25 April to recognise those serving members, past and present and remember those who gave their lives serving our country.

Redcliffe RSL Vice President, Cheryl Barrett, said the theme for this year was “Afghanistan Victoria Cross recipients and those killed in action during Operation Slipper”.

“I encourage [everyone] to attend the DAWN SERVICE fall-in at 5am at Baker Street, stepping off at 5.15am. The Dawn Service commences at the Anzac Place Memorial at 5.30am,” she said.

“There will be a Gun Fire breakfast at the completion of this service in the Redcliffe RSL. Local favourite, Rupert McCall will be reciting one of his poems at the Dawn Service.”

THE MID-MORNING MARCH AND SERVICE will start with the annual Anzac Day parade, which will assemble at the corner of Anzac Avenue and Redcliffe Parade. The march starts around 9.40am with the service commencing at the Anzac Place Memorial at around 10.30am. Major Taylor Luxford-Sanderson will be the reviewing officer and guest speaker for this service. 

Shuttle buses will run between Kippa-Ring train station and the showgrounds, with dropoffs in Sutton Street. The last shuttle leaves from Sutton Street at 1.30pm. Disability parking is available across the road from the Redcliffe Police Station, with entry via Klinger Road.

“Vintage Military Vehicles are available for ex-vets who can no longer walk the distance but would like to participate.” To register your name phone 3897 6060.

Redcliffe RSL will be open after the services with Two-Up commencing at 1pm.

THE WOODY POINT SERVICE will be held from 8am – 9am at the Woody Point Memorial Hall. Morning tea will be supplied by the ladies of the St Peter the Fisherman Guild.

There will also be a service at REDCLIFFE CEMETERY on Sunday 14 April from 10am – 11am (with limited seating available). Cadet of the Year for 2018 plaques will be
