Vector Lights on Anzac Day

Vector Lights
In collaboration with the RSA, Auckland Harbour Bridge will join more than 80 events across the region in paying tribute to those who served their country in the First World War and other conflicts.

For Anzac Day, Vector Lights will play from 5am until 6.30am, to coincide with dawn services, and then play again from 6pm until midnight.

The animation references a journey across water – of a civilian travelling to war and back again. Look for nods to the Māori Battalion, the Southern Cross, the silver fern and, of course, a field of poppies in the wind.

The lighting design will be accompanied by “Sons of Gallipoli” as sung by the Auckland Boys Choir, followed by the Last Post. 


  • The Anzac Day light and sound show starts on Wednesday 25 April at 5am until 6:30am (coinciding with dawn services), and it will run again from 6pm until midnight.
