Anzac Week (18-25 April)
A spectacular series of commemorative events are planned for Anzac Week in Wellington during April as New Zealanders mark the centenary of the Gallipoli landings during the First World War.
The programme will begin with the official opening of Pukeahu National War Memorial Park on Saturday, April 18 at 11am.
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 Sreets, near the Basin Reserve.
Larger than usual crowds are expected at these services and organisation is well under way to cater for this situation.
Wednesday 20 May Battle of Crete service at 11am
