ANZAC Day Commemorative Services 

 
 
 ANZAC DAY SERVICES 2012
 
 
 

 
ANZAC Day is when we pause to remember those Australians and New Zealanders killed in war, to honour returned servicemen and women and to pay tribute to those personnel who are currently serving their countries. Although its timing recalls the landing at Gallipoli of the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps on 25 April 1915, the Commemorative Service is for all those who have given their lives during conflict.

In 2012 we will be holding two ANZAC Day Commemorative Services in New York. The first will be a Dawn Service, held at 6.00 am on Wednesday 25th April at the East Coast Memorial in Battery Park. The Service will be held rain or shine - we encourage you to come prepared with warm clothing & an umbrella in case of inclement weather.

The traditional Sunday Service will be held on Sunday 29th April commencing at 9.30am at the ANZAC Memorial Garden on the roof of the Rockefeller Center, 620 Fifth Avenue, New York. The entrance to the Garden is on the south side of West 50th Street.
In the event of inclement weather, the service will be held in the room adjacent to the Garden. Both Services will be co-hosted by the Australian and New Zealand Consuls General.

Entry to the Sunday Service:  Please carry photo identification (for example US ID card, driver’s license or passport). Bags may be searched before being granted access to the Garden.
Numbers will be very restricted for the Sunday Service; therefore people are encouraged to arrive early to be given entry.

Immediately following the Sunday Service, guests are invited to join us for morning tea at the Rockefeller Center.

Due to the nature of the Service, respectful attire is requested.

We look forward to seeing you at the Service.
