Public Kings Park dawn service capped at 500

The pandemic will again limit the traditional Anzac Day dawn service at Kings Park, which is set to be an invitation-only event this year if level two restrictions remain.

In 2020, the state was coming to grips with COVID-19 and again last year Anzac Day fell in the middle of a snap three-day lockdown.

RSL WA chief executive John McCourt told Gareth Parker on 6PR Breakfast the service would be by invitation-only at this stage, capped at 500, but there was room for this to change.

“We’re encouraging the public to maybe stay home and take part in the extremely successful dawn services that have been conducted in the past two years, using your driveway or balcony.

Parker said he hoped the McGowan government was doing everything in its power “to get back to normal on this question around Anzac Day, and every part of ordinary life that we’ve sacrificed for the last two-plus years”.

“There is a danger that if you don’t get back to normal, you lose the power of the tradition,” he told Breakfast listeners.
