  • Serine coastlines into bustling frontlines.

  • In Turkey, the battle is perceived as a defining moment in the history of the Turkish people – a final surge in the defence of the motherland as the centuries old Ottoman Empire was crumbling; and in Australia & New Zealand, the then perceived duty to serve their “Mother Country” Britain, resulted in their military defeat.

  • Places of heroism & sacrifice. Immense national significance.

  • Raw beauty of this enviroment lies in contrast with the sobering history of the Great War.

At this time especially, Gallipoli becomes a place of pilgrimage for so many Aussies & Kiwis who want to honour the memory of their forbears.
