Anzac Day Saturday 25th April 2015

On the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings Torpedo Bay Navy Museum invites you to come and share in our Anzac Day commemorations.

Make a poppy and plant it in our field of remembrance, that will grow over the day as we remember the service and sacrifice of all those who have served:  including those who landed at Anzac Cove 100 years ago.

View panels from ‘5000 Poppies NZ’.  See this visually stunning collaborative work handcrafted by people across New Zealand and Australia as their tribute to those who served at Gallipoli and elsewhere in World War One.

Entrance to the galleries, exhibitions and participation in the activities is free of charge
