Celebrate Auckland Anniversary Weekend on Your Waterfront


Auckland Anniversary Weekend on the waterfront is shaping up to be one of the best anniversary celebrations the waterfront has ever seen. We are excited to see the revitalised waterfront host an awesome line-up of events offering something for everyone’s taste.

There are also lots of free activities to get amongst throughout the weekend. So say happy 173rd birthday to the City of Sails by watching waka and dragon boat races, taking a boat ride, catching a busker as you stroll the promenade or just chill out with some awesome live music.

Pukeahu Park : ANZAC 100th Anniversary Dawn Service In Pictures

Roughly 18,000 people gathered this morning at Pukeahu Memorial Park for the Anzac day centenary. Anticipating the large turnout, patrons arrived as early as 4.30. It was virtually impossible to get near the Memorial after 5am. By 6, the crowds on Taranaki Street had stretched as far back as the Z Petrol station.

The screens erected around the park displayed the live events to those who had turned up. The heat generated by the huge number of people caused many to take a turn. Medics and ambulances were on hand for the fainting crowd members. Only twenty minutes into the ceremony, one medic said they had already dealt with 15 to 20 spells. More>>
