The Sunshine Coast will come together over the weekend to honor the men and women who risk their lives as Anzac Day services are held across the area.
Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk announced that public events would go on as usual after a COVID-19 horror in March.
Last year, residents commemorated Anzac Day like never before as virus restrictions forced the cancellation of several marches and church services.
Candles were lit from driveways and the sound of the bugle was played over phones, but this year people can pay their respects as usual.
Some events will not take place on Sunday due to the recent Brisbane outbreak due to insufficient time to make appropriate preparations as per previous guidelines.
These include the popular Dawn Service from the Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club on Mooloolaba Beach and the RSL Sub Branch Service from Palmwoods and District in town.
