Sunshine Coast Mayor Bob Abbott will attend the dawn service at Tewantin and the main service at Buderim.
Services will take place at Alexandra Headland, Beerwah, Buderim, Caloundra, Coolum-Peregian, Cooroy, Eumundi, Landsborough, Glasshouse Mountains, Kawana Waters, Maleny, Mapleton-Montville, Maroochydore, Mudjimba, Nambour, Palmwoods, Tewantin-Noosa, Woombye, Woodford and Yandina.
A number of RSL Sub-Branches will also provide community breakfasts and refreshments following services.
Residents seeking further information on ANZAC Day activities or road closures in their area should contact their local RSL Sub-Branch or community group.
