Newcastle: Thousands braved the rain and packed into Camp Shortland to pay tribute to serving men and women in the first of Newcastles Anzac Day commemorations.

Cessnock: More than 2000 people gathered at the Cessnock war memorial for the 5.30am service to remember that day, 103 years ago, when the Australian troops landed at Gallipoli.

Clarence Town: If the diggers can fight in the rain, we can stand in the rain.

Those were the words from a man in the crowd when heavy rain bucketed down midway through Clarence Towns Dawn Service.

Medowie: In a town of little more than 10,000 people, organisers of the Anzac Day dawn service at Medowie were very pleased with the turnout.

Nelson Bay: Apex Park was a sea of umberellas on Wednesday morning as rain poured down on the Nelson Bay dawn service.

Denman: The districts fallen soldiers were honoured at the Denman Anzac Day Dawn Service on Wednesday.

More than 150 people attended the ceremony at Memorial Park, with bagpipe player Col Scriven adding to the atmosphere as the sun rose in the distance.

Traditional recitation on Anzac Day - Ode of Remembrance

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them."
