Pukeahu National War Memorial Park commemorates all New Zealanders who died in war, and honours the servicemen and women who served their country in war.
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.
A visit to the park is an essential experience for schools investigating themes relating to New Zealand's military history and concepts relating to national identity, expressions of citizenship and commemoration.
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 memorials from other countries with which New Zealand has a close military relationship. It is also the site of The Great War Exhibition.
Free, facilitated tours of Pukeahu National War Memorial Park and Great War Exhibition park are available for school groups, and must be booked in advance.
