Despite the trying conditions, hundreds of Busselton families turned out to the Busselton War Memorial to pay their respects on Anzac Day.

Community members young and old gathered to acknowledge the service of the veterans who fought for Australia and New Zealand and their dedication to our country.

Following the service, merriment continued at the Busselton RSL hall where people indulged in a light morning tea, conversation and games of two-up.
