Anzac Day Celebration – 25 April 2016

New Zealand locals always look forward to the Anzac Day Celebration events hosted across New Zealand each year, honoring both the fallen war heroes and heroines as well as those who have served and safely returned home.

Eastwoodhill Arboretum Welcomes Visitors from Around the World

Eastwoodhill Arboretum hosts an amazing Anzac Day Celebration every year to pay tribute to New Zealand war heroes, and this is one celebration that you and your group can feel welcomed to enjoy alongside the locals. It’s an affordable way to spend some time experiencing a bit of New Zealand Nature outdoors, and it’s a great place to bring the kids! Pack a picnic (food also available for purchase) and be sure the kids bring their favorite stuffed bear (or other stuffed friend) with them.
