Gallipoli

It’s been over a century since the Anzacs landed at Gallipoli during WWI, but these former battlefields remain a significant historic site. On 25 April, Anzac Day, Australian and New Zealand travellers flock to these shores for the dawn service, though a journey here is just as stirring during quieter times. Almost 50,000 Australians fought at Gallipoli, and Anzac Cove, where many of them landed, is just one of the many historic spots to visit along the Anzac Walk – a two-kilometre route of rugged, scrub-covered land that was occupied by the troopers back in 1915. Stop at the Lone Pine Memorial, which marks one of the bloodiest battles of the campaign, and at the solemn site called Johnston’s Jolly, where 42,000 Turkish soldiers descended on Anzac trench lines.
