Services across the country may be cancelled, but Anzac Day is not. This year, stand in your driveway, on your balcony or in your living room to remember all those who have served and sacrificed. The incredible social movement is called Driveway at Dawn.
An app has been released on both Android and Apple, that will feature a virtual candle and synchronised playing of The Last Post at precisely 6am so we can virtually stand side-by-side to show our respect as a nation. It is free and you can download if you search ‘Anzac Day 2020’. Simply select your city and choose your flag and this will automatically set up the app. If you open the app at 5:30am, a candle within the application will light. At 5:55am, you will be prompted to move to the driveway of your home where the service will begin.
A Dawn Service at The Australian War Memorial will also be broadcasted live across Australia by the ABC and can be streamed online.
