ANZAC Day celebrations continue at the Yeppoon RSL, as between 70 and 80 people enjoy an afternoon barbecue.
Yeppoon RSL sub-branch president Chris Panglase said the turnout to the town's dawn service was "magnificent" with about 3000 people in attendance.
The moving service was followed by breakfast and two-up at The Strand Hotel, before crowds headed to the Yeppoon RSL.
Mr Penglase said once everyone had paid their respects to Australia's fallen soldiers, the day was a chance for the nation's legendary mateship to shine through.
"We're getting together and we talk about what happened in our time in the service," he said.
"That's what Anzac Day is, it's comradeship, talking to each other and it's good therapy I think."
