NZ'S FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY2014-2019

Where: Tauranga Waterfront, The Strand, Tauranga, Bay of Plenty

Restrictions: All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Admission: Free

One hundred and nine white crosses are at the heart of commemorating the armistice that ended the First World War in 1918. The crosses will be installed at dawn in the lead-up to Armistice Day and form the Field of Remembrance.

The months that the First World War lasted have been carefully translated into a period of 28 days to represent the time when the soldiers from Tauranga died.

Cadets from the Western Bay of Plenty Cadet Unit, along with the assistance of other units in the area will bring the crosses out at dawn between 17 October and 8 November 2018. Everyone is invited to join them and commemorate our fallen.

The Field of Remembrance will be accompanied by the Homecomings: From Tauranga to the Trenches exhibition.

After all the crosses are installed, they will be re-located to Memorial Park, the location for the city’s official Armistice Day Centenary Service.

Find out more about Tauranga’s Armistice Day commemorations and the timetable for the cross installation at the website.
