Griffith's Memorial Park came to a standstill for a moment on Monday morning as the city stopped to remember those who have died in the line of duty.
A Remembrance Day service was held at the Griffith Cenotaph to mark 101 years since the signing of the Armistice, which brought an end to World War I.
About 100 people attended the service, which was organised by the Griffith RSL sub-branch and aimed to pay respect to the 102,882 members of the Australian armed forces who have died serving the country.
Sub-branch member Terry Walsh said it was "wonderful" to see a strong turnout on a weekday.
"It was a weekend last year and we had a special service and a new plaque so there was quite a big crowd," Mr Walsh said.
"But for a normal weekday service, it was probably the biggest crowd I have seen since I've become involved with the services."
"It just goes to show the message about Anzac Day and Remembrance Day are important days in the Australian calendar."
The service saw Mr Walsh, sub-branch secretary Ffiona Beverley and sub-branch chaplain Father Rob Harris give readings and prayers before representatives from a number of community groups put down wreaths on the cenotaph, with members from the Griffith Exies club and students from the Clontarf Academy among the wreath-layers.
A minute's silence was held at 11am to honour those who had died in the line of service before a rendition of The Last Post was performed and members from the Sing Australia choir performed a hymn to close out the event.
Mr Walsh said the sub-branch attempts to organise simple services as they tend to get strong backing from the local community.
"If you can have a service that is respectful, relevant and easy for people to participate in... It's pleasing for us as organisers and very pleasing to see large numbers of people turning up," Mr Walsh said.
Those who attended the service were invited back to the Griffith War Memorial Museum for a brief morning tea after the ceremony.
