Naracoorte Anzac Day dawn service 2019 | PHOTOS

Hundreds of people filled the Naracoorte town squares on Thursday morning for the annual commemoration of the landing of Anzac troops at Gallipoli in 1915.

On a crisp, clear morning, the traditional dawn service started in darkness at 5.30am and closed with a march of veterans and others just before 6.30am.

Anzac Day services were also held locally at Lucindale and Penola.
