Anzac Day and other commemorations in Belgium and New Zealand

Anzac Day (25th April) is a day when Australians and New Zealanders traditionally gather to commemorate their war dead. The date and the name, Anzac, mark the anniversary of the landing of the Australian and New Zealand troops at Anzac Cove in Gallipoli.

Every year on Anzac Day, the New Zealand Ambassador to Belgium participates in commemorations held at the New Zealand Memorial in Mesen and at the Menin Gate in Ieper. The details are posted on the Embassy newspage before 25 April and the public are welcome to participate in these commemorations.

More information can be obtained by calling the New Zealand Embassy in advance of Anzac Day.

More information about other dates and times of commemorations in New Zealand,  please keep an eye on our website and Facebook page.
