After COVID-19 restrictions forced the cancellation of Anzac Day commemorations around the country in 2020, Returned and Services Leagues (RSLs) are planning their 2021 events.

RSL Margaret River President Keith Simmonds said the annual memorial ceremonies would return to Margaret River this month.

"A Dawn Service will be held in Memorial Park commencing at 6.00am on Sunday April 25, followed by a gunfire breakfast at the Margaret River District Club," Mr Simmonds said.

With the Main Street works complete, the popular parade through town will also return to the day's calendar.

"The march will commence at 11.00am from Reuther Park, followed by the main service at Memorial Park. This will be followed by fellowship at the Margaret River District Club with Two-Up commencing at 2.00pm."

In Perth, crowds at the Kings Park Dawn Service will be limited to 10,000 people, with online registration required online prior to the day under government COVID-19 regulations.
