Our Backyard – Aireys Inlet

Rain, rain and more rain this week, but it didn’t stop a hardy few who gathered on the beach at Moggs Creek on Tuesday morning for what has become a small but solemn gathering for the Anzac Day dawn service.

The rotten weather prevented the traditional bbq and breakfast from being cooked on the beach, but a flag was hoisted on a makeshift flag pole and a large radio broadcast the service from the Shrine for those in attendance.

Jackets, beanies and a collection of thermoses were the order of the day as the rain continued to fall.

Up the road at Torquay an estimated 8000 turned up for the dawn service which was down on expectations , most likely due to the weather. To take pressure off Torquay (which regularly attracts more then 10,000 people) the Vietnam Veterans association of Australia held a service at Geelong’s Eastern Beach which an estimated 3500 people attended.
