The 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings have been marked by unprecedented crowds across Otago this morning.
It is estimated 18,000 to 20,000 people attended the Dawn Service at Queens Garden in Dunedin. The area surrounding the garden and cenotaph was full to capacity as were nearby streets, as much larger than usual crowd gathered to mark the centenary.
"While you wait think of those waiting on ships about to go ashore at Gallipoli 100 years ago," the crowd was told as it waited for the service to begin.
