Earlier today, with an almost full moon still beaming, thousands gathered in Brisbane's CBD for the Anzac Day dawn service (pictured).
The Australian prime minister attended the dawn service in Townsville, north Queensland. Townsville, where the weather can reach 50 degrees or more, is Australia's Aldershot.
As well as paying respect to the fallen, a senior officer asked people to remember today's veterans.
"We not only honour those who have died to protect our way of life, but we also honour those were wounded physically and emotionally and those who have stayed at home to support personnel in operations.
"We honour those friends and family who continue to support personnel after they return."
