Palm Beach / Currumbin RSL President Michael Humphreys told myGC they are anticipating a huge turnout for the dawn service on Monday.

“The community have a need to be in attendance at the rock. It’s not just our commemoration, it’s for all of the Gold Coast.

“ANZAC Day is the main opportunity for Australians to commemorate and offer their respects for all the soldiers, sailors and airmen who’ve lost their lives in wars since 1918. It’s a really important day.”

Mr Humphreys said locals who are unable to attend a service on April 25 can take part in Light Up The Dawn.

“If you can’t get out and see a service, you light up with your lights and stand at your driveway and pay your respects during the dawn,” he said.
