Yesterday, Maheno man Colin Ewing finished painting the second flag pole installed last week at the Maheno Cenotaph.
He paid for the flag pole himself after he gave up trying to get funding for the project.
''It's really embarrassing having Australians come out here and we fly one flag. It is Anzac Day so we think it's proper that we fly the Australian flag. The Australian flag beside the New Zealand flag.''
He said the North Otago settlement a growing number of Australians were visiting the town as it shared a bond with Fraser Island.
In 1935, the hospital ship TSS Maheno, stationed at Gallipoli, was sold for scrap to Japan, but ran aground on Fraser Island during a cyclone while being towed north from Australia.
The flag pole cost about $50 and was made from recycled from various items from around North Otago.
Mr Ewing said the Australian national anthem would also be sung at this year's Maheno service.
