A sole bagpipe player commemorated Anzac Day this morning at Mount Maunganui with a performance in front of a beautiful beach sunrise.

Lucy Olphert filmed this morning's performance at the Mount, describing it on Facebook as "one I will never forget".

"Thanks to this incredible man whoever you were! Nga mihi nui," she wrote.

"Lest we forget."

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Kiwis throughout the country got creative with how they marked Anzac Day.

People throughout the country stood at their gates at dawn instead of attending their usual services.
