Auckland ANZAC events: The revised schedule


Below is the revised schedule of Anzac Day events for Auckland.

Police from across Auckland, the Auckland District Returned and Services Association (RSA) and Auckland Council have been working together to agree a consolidated list of events in the wake of the Christchurch attacks.

In the current heightened security environment, Police have agreed to maintain a visible presence at events for public reassurance.

As a result, Police had recommended that Anzac Day events in Auckland be consolidated so that they could adequately resource each public gathering.

In conjunction with Police and the RSA, Auckland Council has confirmed that this year?s events schedule will be reduced to 26 events from last year?s 84.

The list of event locations is outlined below.

Those gathering at each event will be invited to attend their local RSA at the conclusion of the activities, should this be appropriate or convenient.

Auckland Council and Auckland Transport are now working on a range of transport options to ensure that those wishing to attend these events are able to do so.

This schedule of activities has been collectively agreed and supported by all agencies, enabling the RSA to give good coverage across the city while also managing the requirements of the Police.

Meanwhile, other commemoration activities for Anzac Day will continue as planned. Vector Lights on Auckland Harbour Bridge will shine poppy-red for Poppy Day on 10, 11 and 12 April and display a moving Anzac Day light show with soundtrack on 23, 24 and 25 April; brought to Auckland from 6pm until midnight each evening.

Auckland War Memorial Museum T?maki Paenga Hira will also light up on 12 April for Poppy Day and on 23, 24 and 25 April for Anzac Day.
