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.
This year in Wellington the dawn service for Anzac Day and the 11am National Anzac Day service are being held at the new Pukeahu National War Memorial Park, between Taranaki and Tory Streets, near the Basin Reserve.
Larger than usual crowds are expected for both services, and organisation is well under way to cater for this situation.
