Poppies have been projected onto the Sydney Opera House in a special moment of recognition of Remembrance Day. 

A one-off health exemption has been granted for Remembrance Day services, permitting up to 100 people outdoors.

 

Acting Veterans Minister Geoff Lee told Ben Fordham people are being encouraged not to gather around the Opera House today.

“The Opera House will certainly be lit up again tonight.”

Australians marked the anniversary of the end of the First World War by pausing wherever they were.

War historian Mat McLachlan told Deborah Knight shopping centres were among the public places displaying the limited attendance ceremony.

“The one thing that I’m really heartened by in the whole COVID drama is that we’re finding ways to adapt, and Remembrance Day is no exception.

“It’s wonderful to see that people are not forgetting.”
