Anzac Day services to go ahead

Anzac Day services will be held at three Bellarine Peninsula locations on April 25.

Here’s all the information you need if you plan on attending.

Ocean Grove

Anzac Day services will return to Ocean Grove, however the march and commemorative service in Barwon Heads will not go ahead.

The Ocean Grove march will be restricted to veterans and first responders only, with all participants needing to register beforehand.

Both the dawn and mid-morning services will be restricted to 1000 participants, with everyone attending required to register as they enter Ocean Grove Park.

Ocean Grove’s dawn service will commence at 6.15am with attendees asked to arrive by 5.45am.

The march will leave from The Terrace (outside Coles) at 9.45am and will conclude at the RSL Memorial in Ocean Grove Park followed by a commemorative service commencing at 10am.

Sign in sheets and QR Codes will be available at the various entry points.


Queenscliff/Point Lonsdale RSL will hold an Anzac Day service although community members are urged not to attend so that veterans and their families can.

People are instead encouraged to participate in Light Up the Dawn ceremonies.


This year’s service will be a little different as it will be held solely at the cenotaph in High Street, with the march being conducted along Princess Street.

If wishing to attend the service, arrive by 10am for a 10.30am start, sign in using either the sign-in sheets provided or the QR code which will be available at several locations around the cenotaph, sanitise your hands and maintain social distancing where possible.

The club is very supportive of the RSL’s ‘Light Up the Dawn’ initiative, which was very well supported by the community last year.
