Observed annually on 25 April, ANZAC Day is one of Aotearoa New Zealand's most important days of national commemoration.

It marks the anniversary of the first major action by New Zealand and Australian forces during the First World War, landing on the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

ANZAC Day commemorates those we’ve lost to war and honours returned servicemen and women. Join us in remembering them during ANZAC ceremonies in Horowhenua. Lest we forget.

In event of bad weather, commemorations will move indoors. Some locations will change as indicated. An announcement will be made on our Facebook page on ANZAC Day morning should we need to move to wet weather venues.
