Anzac Day was first observed in New Zealand on 25 April, 1916 and now represents the 30,000+ New Zealanders who have died at war in this country's service since 1899.

Anzac Day is a national day of commemoration observed on 25 April each year. It commemorates those who died serving New Zealand during war and it honours returned servicemen and women, past and present. 25 April marks the day in 1915 when Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) landed at Gallipoli in Turkey, the site of New Zealand’s first major battle of World War One with the loss of over 2,700 New Zealand soldiers.

Since the first commemorative services in 1916, Anzac Day has evolved into the observance we know today, with Kiwis and Australians of all ages attending services and events across the world, from dawn until dusk.

We honour the Anzac values of courage, compassion, camaraderie, and commitment and a time we depended on each other as brothers.

A parade of service personnel, school parties, cadet corps and local community groups will leave the Lakefront intersection of Whakaue and Fenton Streets at 9am marching to the Sir Howard Morrison Performing Arts Centre and arriving at 9:20am.
