A chance to wind down and reflect
In the afternoon, people may indulge in a game of two-up at their local pub or club.
For others, it is simply a quite day at home to reflect on the sacrifices made by the Diggers.
Anzac Day marks the first landing of Diggers from the Australian Imperial Force at Gaba Tepe, now known as Anzac Cove, on April 25, 1915.
Twenty-thousand Australian soldiers landed just before dawn on the Gallipoli peninsula.
By nightfall, 747 of those soldiers would lie dead on the beach or close by in the surrounding steep cliffs, killed by Turkish troops.
The Gallipoli campaign claimed the lives of 8000 Australian soldiers; in all, more than 60,000 Australians died during World War I.
Anzac Days remember their courage and valour and provide a nation with an opportunity to reflect on our first major military action during World War I.
