Aviation authorities have warned owners of drones not to fly them near Anzac Day ceremonies and marches.
The remote-controlled cameras are often used to capture aerial images.
Under current regulations, drones must not fly closer than 30 metres to vehicles and buildings and must not fly over any area with a large number of people, unless authorised for commercial use.
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority’s (CASA) Peter Gibson said it was too risky to fly drones over crowds at Anzac Day ceremonies.
