A MOMENT OF REFLECTION
For visitors from all over the world, Gallipoli is a special place of pilgrimage. In April, thousands of people attend the ANZAC Day service every year.
Gallipolli is quite busy all throughout the year. People come here to commemorate the famous battles of The Great War and to remember the fallen heroes. Please pay your own respects and consider that some visitors may be visiting grandfathers and great-grandfathers they never had the chance to meet.
