The actual day of the burn will be subject to weather conditions and availability of volunteers.

While you will need to keep a social distance from others, feel free to leave flowers or a wreath or just reflect in your own way. The Shire of Cuballing has released a short ANZAC Service video using our Popanyinning and Cuballing memorials and our local residents who would normally participate in our local ANZAC services. The video also includes a montage of photographs of local Great War veterans. The video has been edited together by Cuballing resident Cooper George. A big thank you to all who participated and made our video possible at short notice. Their efforts have allowed us to at least have the spirit of our local ANZAC services on 25th April 2020.
