Attendees were given specially made guitar picks paying tribute to Malcolm, and a program that read: "Malcolm's family thank you for your love, support and overwhelming outpouring of kindness during this sad time. His enormous legacy to his family and music industry worldwide would never be forgotten". That band played "It's A Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock "n" Roll)" as the casket was led to a hearse, which was unadorned.

Hundreds of fans had formed queues in the streets near the church to see the coffin of Young's cast in its last home, while a band playing orchestrated Australian "unofficial national anthem", Waltzing Matilda, the AAP.
