Anzac Day | Guide to services

TOMORROW marks the Anzac centenary - the anniversary of the first major action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during World War I.

It is a day for the community to come together and show their respects for all those who have served and died in wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.

Naracoorte will start its ceremony early with locals invited to the war memorial at 5.30am.

After the formalities there will be a march up and down Ormerod St before a breakfast at the Naracoorte Hotel.

All the schools will be involved in some way, as well as the Naracoorte Highland Pipe Band, combined schools choir, Naracoorte Singers and the Naracoorte Lucindale Concert Band.

Attendees will also be taken back to the days of the Light Horse Brigade for the second consecutive year with Cameron Strachan dressing in World War I period costume and riding horse "Bomber".

In Lucindale, the public is asked to gather at the war memorial from 6.45am for a 7am start.

The service will be followed by morning tea at the Lucindale RSL Hall and then breakfast at the Lucindale Hotel.
