This year, Anzac Day 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.
The Anzac Day dawn service is a moving rite of passage for many kiwis. Every year, thousands of Kiwis and Australians – young and old – travel to Gallipoli.
Since the first commemorative services in 1916, Anzac Day has evolved into the observance we know today, with Kiwis and Australians of all ages attending services and events across the world, from dawn until dusk.
In the afternoon we relax, spend time with our loved ones and if we are lucky, enjoy a day off work or school.
We honor the Anzac values of courage, compassion, camaraderie, and commitment and a time we depended on each other as brothers.
