The Australian and New Zealand Embassies will be holding ANZAC Day dawn service on April 25 at the War Memorial Museum.

This year will be an especially large event attended by a sizeable number of Australian and New Zealand Korean War veterans and visiting dignitaries.

The service will be followed by a gunfire breakfast at the same venue.

All are invited to join the service and there are also some limited places available at the breakfast.

Due to catering restrictions, those requesting to attend the breakfast need to provide their name and contact number by email to the Australian Assistant Defense Attache Lieutenant Commander Chris Smith at or the New Zealand Defense Attache office at

Although the dawn service will be open to members of the public, only those who receive a confirmation email will be able to attend the breakfast.

ANZAC Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, and is commemorated by both countries on April 25 every year to honor members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who died and served in military operations.
