After being severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic last year, Anzac Day marches and services have been held across much of the country today, albeit with some restrictions in place.
Crowd numbers at events in most capital cities were capped this morning.
And in Western Australia’s Perth and Peel regions, dawn services were cancelled for a second year amid a three-day COVID-19 lockdown.
While events planned in regions outside of the metropolitan area went ahead with no restrictions, residents in Perth and the Peel region paid their respects from home with “Light up the Dawn” mini-services in their driveways.
