In Victoria, the Dawn Service is held each year at the Shrine of Remembrance and is then followed later in the morning by the annual Anzac Day March along St Kilda Road to the Shrine. Another service is then held around 12 noon. Services are also held in other states as well as services held at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. Later, television viewers can watch the Dawn Service at Gallipoli in Turkey followed by the service at the Australian National Memorial at Villers-Bretonneaux in France.
Commemorative services are also held at many RSLs throughout the country.

This year many household residents arranged their own commemorations, either individually or collectively within a street. The dawn ceremony held at the National War Memorial in Canberra was broadcast beginning at 5.30. The suggestion had been made that household residents might like to listen to the service standing with a candle or torch at the end of their driveway or on a balcony. This allowed social / physical distancing to be maintained but, when a number of people in a street took part, also allowed for community participation. In some cases a local resident played the last post. Many families took part in this activity throughout Australia.
