No walks ANZAC Day - 23rd Apr 2018

No walks ANZAC Day 25 April (Wednesday) is ANZAC Day, the day New Zealanders and Australians set aside to commemorate the sacrifices made during the tragic Gallipoli campaign in World War One.

It's a public holiday, so there'll be no walks happening. There will be a dawn service at Dunedin's Cenotaph (Queen's Gardens), at approx. 6.15am. In fact, there'll be services at dawn, or other times, at almost every settlement across New Zealand. Visitors are welcome to attend these services. Those who attend the Dunedin service may go to Toitu Museum afterwards for a warming cup of tea.
