ANZAC & GALLIPOLI 
 

ANZAC DAY

The Dawn Service at Anzac Cove is an event that will remain in your memory for years to come. It is a truly moving experience to visit the battlefields and cemeteries, and to live the history that is Gallipoli. The names in history books come alive as we explore Anzac Cove, Lone Pine, The Nec and Chanuk Bair. Our tour oulines have been especially designed to allow you time to explore Gallipoli before Anzac Day and appreciate the valour of this unique place that has become an integral part of our history and culture.

 

Whilst there is the desire in many to attend the actual dawn service on Anzac Day this has become a very crowded event. Early booking is essential to ensure you are accommodated on the peninsula and not have to consume time using the ferry! It has become part of the 'partypacker' network. Generally this is a negative thing, but we hope those that come because of its trendy' on the partypacker route' leave with a more profound understanding of Anzac and its history, thus drawing out a positive.

 

The other school of thought is to avoid Anzac Day and visit at quieter times. The first time this writer visited this area it was so quiet we set up camp in what served as a car park, under the fringing pine trees. My first night was under a pine tree under the stars! A friend, who was infected with a similar love of history, and I then proceed to climb from the beaches up one or two of the assault routes. There were no tracks. In amongst the vegetation we found trench and dugout remains, shell cases and even rusted bully beef cans!! Over the years revisiting saw developmental changes! Some of these were required due to the numbers now visiting, but 1978, under the stars still remains my most solid memory of Anzac Cove.
