Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott will make his second official visit to New Zealand next week to take part in the Anzac centenary commemorations.
During his visit, Mr Abbott will join Prime Minister John Key at the dedication ceremony of the Australian Memorial in the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park in Wellington.
"The park was designed and built to acknowledge the centenary of the First World War, and is a place where people can commemorate and reflect on our history and partnership with countries such as Australia," Mr Key said.
"The Australian Memorial is positioned right in the heart of the park, befitting of the close and enduring relationship between our two nations."

Australia's Veterans' Affairs Minister, Senator Michael Ronaldson, is also scheduled to attend the dedication ceremony of the Australian Memorial on April 20, alongside other New Zealand ministers and invited guests.
Following the dedication ceremony, the prime ministers will visit Te Papa to view the Gallipoli: The Scale of Our War exhibition, created by Sir Richard Taylor.
"It is great to be able to welcome Prime Minister Abbott back to New Zealand so soon after his first visit in February for the Australia-New Zealand leaders' talks," Mr Key said.
