ANZAC Day on Bribie Island

Community leaders, school children and men and women serving Australia past and present came together on ANZAC day to march on Bribie Island.

Some highlights of the day include an old military vehicle being driven in the parade and flyover captured in a video put together by OurBribie.com.

Bribie Island played a strategic role in World War Two, with concrete forts being built early on during that war. These concrete structures were built by men drafted from the Main Roads Department called the Civil Constructional Corps.
