At Gallipoli

Make sure you attend the Dawn Service at Anzac Cove. Afterwards, Australians should gather at Lone Pine and New Zealanders at Chunuk Bair for the national services.

View the poignant memorials,  trenches and battlefields of the Gallipoli Peninsula.

For a historical overview of the battle visit Kabatepe, the Anzac Museum.

In Turkey

Nude rub-downs in a Turkish bath and the tasty confectionary Turkish delight might be Turkey’s most famous selling points, but there’s a lot more to the country than that. Go there for Anzac Day but make sure you spare at least a couple of extra days to explore Istanbul, a heady mix of Europe and Asia. The Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and famous Spice Market are must- see attractions.

Venture further afield to the ruins of Troy and Ephesus, the glittering white calcite cliffs and thermal pools at Pamukkale, the fairy chimneys of Cappadocia and the resorts of the Turkish Riviera.
