ANZAC day in Belgium will start at 06.00 AM with the Dawn Service at Polygon Wood. There is a shuttle bus service from the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 from 05.15 AM on.
This commemoration service is for Australians, New Zealanders and anyone else who is interested in the common history of the ANZACs.
The Ambassadors of Australia and New Zealand will attend the commemoration ceremony.
After the ceremony, the town of Zonnebeke offers you a breakfast.
After the breakfast there will be a ceremony at Tyne Cot Cemetery at 09.00 AM for the Australians.
The New Zealanders are leaving Zonnebeke at 08.20 to have their ceremony at 09.00 AM in Messines.
 There is a special Last Post at 11.00 AM under the Menin gate followed by a reception offered by the town of Ypres.

We hope to welcome as much as possible people from New Zealand and Australia who are traveling in Europe that time of the year.
