Anzac Day public commemorations in Gallipoli and France have been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Veterans Affairs Minister Darren Chester said the cancellations had been based on health advice.
"The day will still be recognised in these countries, with locally-based officials holding private commemorations in honour of all those who have served our country in uniform, and those who died in service," Mr Chester said on Friday.
"This decision was made in the national interest for the protection of all Australians, at home and abroad, and on the advice of Australian health authorities, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and in consultation with host nations."
Turkey has had just under 2.7 million cases of COVID-19, while France has reported 3.7 million cases.
In Australia, local gatherings will be allowed on Anzac Day, with some limitations on numbers and activities depending on the state and territory in which they are held.
A COVID-safe national service will be held at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra and broadcast nationally.
Many Australians marked Anzac Day last year by observing a minute's silence in their driveways and inside their homes under the theme of "Light up the dawn".
"This year, whether it's attending a local service or standing in your driveway and lighting up the dawn, I encourage all Australians to continue the tradition of honouring our service personnel in a way that is solemn and respectful," Mr Chester said.
