The Gallipoli Peninsula holds a special place in Australians' and New Zealanders' hearts as the birth place of the ANZAC legend, where the nations of Australia and New Zealand stepped out from the shadow of their motherland, Britain. Despite losing far more souls on the battlefields of the Western Front, ANZAC Cove is where the Aussie and Kiwi spirit was born as they fought alongside each other in what turned out to be one of the biggest catastrophes for the Allies during World War I. The only truly successful part of the whole campaign being the retreat less than 9 months after the bloody landings and the efforts to take the Dardanelles and open a supply route through to the Black Sea were abandoned.
We are also ANZAC Day experts having run tours to the cove for the past 14 years, to see our ANZAC Day tours click here. Or if you are interested in being part of the 2015 ANZAC Day commemorations we have a good choice of tours for you.
