I attended the solemn ANZAC Day 2018 Cook Islands Ceremony in Rarotonga.
Although it is a holiday in Cook Islands, there are a handful things to experience for the ANZAC Day in Cook Islands.
After the ANZAC Morning Ceremony and the Dawn Parade, I was invited to join in the pot-luck style breakfast following the event. And even better, I also joined in the RSA gathering – Returned & Services Association (of New Zealand and Rarotonga).
I learned a great amount of Cook Islands history, the soldiers and its military involvement in world wars. Rarotonga RSA’s small museum is a neat place to check out when you’re in town!
The RSA Headquarter is located nearby the airport, and next to the historical Nikao Cemetery. To learn more about the Nikao Cemetery Restoration Project Rarotonga:
