Join us on Anzac Day as we honour the soldiers who fought at Gallipoli and other conflicts in which New Zealand has been involved. Since the first commemorative services in 1916, Anzac Day has evolved into the observance we know today.

This year’s Anzac Day Civic Service will be held at 9am on Tuesday, 25 April at Memorial Park, Tauranga, commemorating 102 years since the Battle of Gallipoli.

Free Park & Ride services will be provided for the Tauranga Civic Memorial Service and the Mount Maunganui Dawn Service.

Groups wishing to march in the parade please assemble by 8.30am next to the Queen Elizabeth Youth Centre.

Wreaths:
Organisations or groups that wish to lay a wreath during the service please email: michaela.blackman@tauranga.govt.nz.

Wreaths laid during the service will be removed from the cenotaph at dusk on Anzac Day. Organisations may collect their wreaths from the Tauranga RSA at 1237 Cameron Road, Greerton, from Wednesday, 26 April until Friday, 28 April 2017. Wreaths not collected by 5pm on Friday, 28 April 2017 will be disposed of.
