Anzac Day Dawn Service

Next date: Thursday, 25 April 2024 | 06:00 AM to 07:00 AM

Dawn service in Te Marae o Hine.

Anzac Day on 25 April is an integral event in our city’s annual calendar. This national day of remembrance commemorates all New Zealanders killed in war and honours returned servicemen and women.

The Dawn Service of Remembrance will begin with an official opening and a set number of veterans and personnel will lay wreaths during the lament, to commemorate their comrades in arms.

Please ensure you’ve had breakfast and some water before attending the service to prevent fainting. Feel free to bring a foldout chair to sit on as seating will be limited.

Parking will be available in and around Te Marae o Hine – The Square.

A civic service follows at 9am. You are welcome to attend both. 

Service personnel and veterans will parade at both the dawn and civic services.
