Thousands gather at War Memorial for Dawn Service
"It was heart warming to see so many people gathered in the early morning for this special event," said Australian War Memorial Director Steve Gower.
"The ANZAC Day services remember those Australian service men and women who have served the nation, and particularly those who have died."
"I encourage those that could not join us earlier today to come to the National Service commencing at 10.15am. The National Service includes the RSL veterans march, and is a great way to recognise our returned service men and women.
"The Memorial will be open after the National Ceremony so that poppies can be placed on the Roll of Honour and Tomb of the Unknown Soldier for those that never returned," said Steve Gower.
The National Ceremony commences at 10.15am
The Memorial will be open until 5pm today.
The Australian War Memorial is one of the nation's most visited museums, a place where Australians can remember and learn about the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on our society.
