ANZAC services get the go-ahead

Aussies will return to Anzac Day ceremonies and marches around the country on Sunday after the pandemic cancelled plans last year. Services will almost return to normal, but there are still strict limits in place. Crowd numbers at the Australia War memorial’s dawn service in Canberra will be limited to 4,200 people and 3,000 for the national ceremony, including the veterans’ march. The National Dawn Service will run from 5:30-6am AEST. A complete guide to other services around Oz can be found here. In more good news, the Victorian Government has lifted spectator numbers at 3 Melbourne venues, opening the MCG gates to 85,000 people for two AFL games this weekend. And if you’re confused as to whether you get a public holiday on Monday, this may help. Day off or not, Anzac biscuits are a must. This recipe has no bells and whistles, but that’s why we love ’em.
