DIGNITARIES, veterans and residents have gathered on a warm Fraser Coast day to remember those who gave their lives for Australia's freedom.

About 400 people gathered around Hervey Bay's cenotaph at Freedom Park in Pialba on Tuesday morning for Remembrance Day and hundreds more attended the service at Maryborough's war memorial.

Handmade poppies have been laid at the base of the cenotaph in Maryborough.
