Melbourne’s Anzac Day march will go ahead, with the Victorian Government confirming 5,500 people can attend.

The dawn service and commemorative services at the Shrine of Remembrance will also take place on April 25 with smaller numbers.

The announcement was make on Wednesday, the day after the state government confirmed the biggest easing of restrictions since the pandemic started.

The government wants Victorians to stay local when possible on Anzac Day, saying hundreds of RSL and local services will also take place.

Shrine of Remembrance events such as the dawn service will be live streamed.

The announcement follows weeks of speculation about whether veterans would be able to march on Anzac Day.

There was no march last year because of Victoria’s first coronavirus lockdown.
