Thousands of people gathered in Busselton to commemorate ANZAC Day on Thursday morning starting with a Dawn Service, gunfire breakfast, parade and an ANZAC Day service.
This year, ANZAC Day marked 104 years since the landing of Australian troops at Gallipoli with the nation continuing to honour and commemorate those who serve, have served previously, and those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
There are approximately 2,400 Australian Defence Force members currently deployed on operations or working overseas, upholding the Anzac spirit as they strive to protect Australia's national interests abroad.
Anzac Day is an especially memorable and solemn experience for ADF personnel, whether on operations or at home.
It is an opportunity to remember those who went before, and reflect on the personal contribution they are making for Australia.
ANZAC Day can be an emotional time for Australia's veterans and their families, Open Arms Veterans and Families Counselling Service provides free support for current and former Australian Defence Force members and their families 24/7 on 1800 011 046 or visiting the Open Arms website.
