Pukeahu National War Memorial Park
Pukeahu National War Memorial Park in Wellington will be created as the Government’s key project to acknowledge the Centenary of the First World War. This will be completed in time to be the centrepiece of Anzac Day commemorations in 2015.
Pukeahu National War Memorial Park will commemorate more than 300,000 New Zealanders who have served their country and the 30,000 who have died. WW100, the centenary of New Zealand's participation in the First World War, will be marked over several years through a variety of commemorative activities and projects.
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.
