Anzac Day Dawn services were held throughout the Fleurieu Peninsula and at Victor Harbor more than 2000 people attended on Soldiers Memorial Gardens at the Cross Of Sacrifice.
Wreaths were laid, president of the Victor Harbor RSL Dave Miller and pastor Lew Saunders did fantastic presentations to the large crowd with full support from the Victor Harbor City Band.
At Yankalilla, one of the largest crowds in recent years gathered at the War Memorial Gardens.
Following the service, most people moved on to the Yankalilla RSL Hall to share a gunfire breakfast.
At Second Valley, 120 people attended the town's first ever dawn service.
Lieutenant Graham Olsson guided guests through the service, and the flag was raised by former Military Member Graeme Smith.
John Lowcock and James lay a wreath to remember his father, Alfred Lowcock, who is remembered on the memorial. They had travelled from Hamilton in Victoria to be a part of the service.
Additional wreaths were laid by community members with ties to those that fell from the district and who are also remembered on the memorial.
Victoria and her family came to pay respect to Garnet Kelly; they are not family but now own his home and wanted to pay respect to him for his services by laying a small sprig of rosemary and native leaves.
SVPA members all pitched in to greet the guests and supply them all with hot coffees, cups of tea, fresh cooked egg and bacon rolls and locally baked ANZAC Biscuits by community members.
Goolwa, Middleton, Port Elliot and Tooperang services are all captured by The Times.
