Many get up in the wee hours to go to dawn services across the country and 90 odd thousand people go to the MCG to watch Essendon and Collingwood play Australian Rules Footy.
Footy crowds are always an interesting bunch; so many passionate, one eyed sports fans all mixed in together.
The great thing about a day like this is that we all stand together and sing our National Anthem, giving our thanks and respect to the Service Men and Women.
You can hear a pin drop as the Last Post and Reveille echo around the ground. The atmosphere is electric.
The siren sounds, the crowd erupts into an almighty roar and it's "game on"
Unfortunately, Essendon weren't at their best and Collingwood had their game plan well and truly sorted.
