ANZAC Day 2014

Each year the High Commission arranges a service to commemorate ANZAC Day. We have great pleasure in inviting all Australians and New Zealanders, families and friends to this year’s service. The service will be held on Friday 25 April, at the Nairobi War Cemetery, off Ngong Road. It will start promptly at 6.00 a.m. and last about 30 minutes, followed by a traditional ANZAC breakfast, also to be held at the Cemetery. The High Commission is also sponsoring an ANZAC Day charity golf tournament on the afternoon of Friday 25 April 2014. It will be held at the Muthaiga Golf Club and raise funds for Little Sports, an Australian charity that runs sports programs for children in Kenya’s most disadvantaged areas. Please let us know if you would like to join us at the ANZAC Day Service and/or the golf tournament. Please e-mail Ms. Bobby Sura at with your details. She can also be called on +254-20-4277-111.
