After the Queensland Premier confirmed ANZAC Day to go ahead as normal this year, there is a lot of excitement for the annual services and marches to return as usual. After only being able to stand in our driveways last year for ANZAC Day, we can now look forward to regular ANZAC Day services and activities.
