Over 4,000 people with special tickets attended the national Anzac Day dawn service at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, with Prime Minister Scott Morrison speaking at the service. He paid special tribute to the 41 Australians who have lost their lives in Afghanistan, following his recent announcement that the last 80 remaining troops will be withdrawn later in 2021. Seating at the dawn service complied with social distancing requirements, with similar measures in place at other services across Australia; crowds were barred from Anzac Day services in Perth due to the snap COVID-19 lockdown.
