Anzac Day 2019 – Dawn Service at Pukeahu and National Commemorations at Pukeahu and Ataturk
The Department is seeking a supplier to provide event production, management and logistics for the Anzac Day 2019 Dawn Service at Pukeahu and the Anzac Day 2019 National Commemoration, and the afternoon service at the Ataturk Memorial.
Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations" and "the contribution and suffering of all those who have served”.
April 25, Anzac Day, was the day the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915. April 25, was officially named ANZAC Day in 1916. The first dawn service on an ANZAC Day was in 1923.
April 25 soon became the day on which Australians remember the sacrifice of those who had died in the war. The Anzacs were courageous and although the Gallipoli campaign failed in its military objectives, the Australian and New Zealand actions during the campaign left us all a powerful legacy.
