In years past, the average Australian attending an ANZAC Day dawn service at Gallipoli was a woman in her late 20s.
In 2015, with nationwide interest in the centenary of the Gallipoli landings and a government ballot for attendance to the ceremony, it will be a man over the age of 50.
The government has published the results of its ballot for passes to commemorations at Gallipoli on April 25.
All 8120 passes have been accepted and the demographics of those in attendance at this year's service will differ markedly to years past.
The office of Veterans' Affairs Minister Michael Ronaldson said young backpackers had formed the bulk of the crowd at Gallipoli dawn services in years past, with about 60 per cent of attendees being under the age of 30.
This year, more than half will be over the age of 45.
More than 42,000 Australians applied for passes in the ballot.
Among those successful are 73 people over the age of 85 and two over the age of 95.
"More than 42,000 Australians applied for 3860 double passes for the commemorations at Gallipoli on Anzac Day this year," Senator Ronaldson said.
"We remain grateful to Turkish authorities for their assistance in managing these very important commemorations which will involve so many Australians, and New Zealanders."
He said those without attendance passes to the Anzac Day commemorations could consider visiting Gallipoli on August 6 for the Battle of Lone Pine Centenary commemoration service.
The Battle of Lone Pine saw some of the fiercest fighting of the Gallipoli campaign.
