A crowd of thousands gathered before dawn at the Centenary of Anzac Reserve in Kellyville to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
An eerie silence filled the air as the service began and scores of veterans bowed their heads in tribute to their fallen brothers and sisters.
Royal Australian Airforce Group Captain Don Sutherland addressed the crowd.
“We are gathered here to honour the memory of the gallant men and women who sacrificed their lives in the service of this country,” he said. “I feel Anzac has transcended anything physical and become something else. It’s not a place, campaign, or even war.
“Anzac is an inspiration.”
