We will remember them.

We will remember their courage and their sacrifice.

Remembering those that served is a reminder that peace, stability and safeguarding our country’s values and interests came with great personal sacrifice.

“Anzac Day is a national day of commemoration observed on 25 April each year. It commemorates those who died serving New Zealand during war while honouring returned and current 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.

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