THE Lower Eyre Peninsula District Council is planning an Anzac Day event at Gallipoli Beach on the west coast for the Anzac centenary celebrations.
An Anzac Day event at Lower Eyre Peninsula’s own Gallipoli Beach will mark the Anzac centenary next year.
Councillor Wendy Holman said the council had been researching how feasible the event would be when taking safety in to account.
“The event would need to have a limited number of people because of liability risk and access,” Mrs Holman said.
Mrs Holman said there had been talk about camping at Gallipoli Beach the morning before Anzac Day and focusing the event towards youth.
Gallipoli Beach was a site for filming of the movie Gallipoli and the council thought it would be a nice way to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Anzac Day.
The traditional dawn service, march and breakfast will still take place in Cummins and the idea of having an event at Gallipoli Beach is being supported by the Cummins-Yeelanna RSL sub-branch.
The plans will be discussed further at tomorrow’s council meeting.
