Hundreds of Katherine residents gathered at the Cenotaph before sunrise to remember those who have fought in conflicts around the world.
In what has been called the most important service of the day, residents paused to mark the 104th anniversary of Anzac.
After a welcome to country by MC, flying officer Grant Soutar, Manuel Pamkal played a piece on the didgeridoo.
Katherine Mayor Fay Miller provided the commemorative address, and Alderman John Raynor paid homage to not only the original Anzacs but to those in service today.
"Not only do we remember the memory of those Australians who have fallen in battle we share the sorrow of those who have mourned them and of all who have been the victims of armed conflict," Mr Raynor said.
"On this day we remeber with sympathy those Australians who have suffered as prisinors of war and those who, because of war, have had their lives shortened or handicapped."
Town leaders, school students and residents laid wreaths at the Cenotaph, before the traditional raising of the flags.
The community march will commence at 9am starting at the eastern end of Katherine Terrace and breaking off at the Cenotaph.
Following the march, a memorial for fallen soldier Private Scott Palmer will be conducted at the Cenotaph at 9.40am.
The service will be followed by a celebration at the Katherine Club where residents can get involved in the traditional game of two up.
