The Pukeahu National War Memorial Park is the national place for New Zealanders to remember and reflect on this country’s experience of war, military conflict and peacekeeping, and how that experience shapes our ideals and sense of national identity.

Located on Buckle Street, the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park encompasses the War Memorial Carillon, the Hall of Memories, and the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior, along with the Australian Memorial and memorials from other countries with which New Zealand has a close military relationship. 

Opened in April 2015, the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park is the government’s key project to acknowledge the centenary of the First World War. 

Pukeahu National War Memorial Park is a place where people can gather on major ceremonial occasions such as Anzac Day, but is also a place where people can visit on any day of the year.

The Great War Exhibition

This exhibition is located behind the National War Memorial and is operated separately. Further information and contact details for any enquiries can be found on The Great War Exhibition listing.
