Rain did not dampen the Anzac spirit as hundreds braved the inclement weather to honour the fallen at the commemoration ceremony at the Brookfield Showgrounds on Monday, April 25.

The solemn Anzac Day march was attended by veterans and their families, and included were 12 participants from the Sri Lanka Ex-Servicemen’s Association of Queensland. An estimated crowd of 2500 took part in the ceremony and activities, enjoying Sri Lankan cuisine provided by Thilani Catering and the Walkway to Ceylon food truck.
