Welcome to the Gallipoli 2015 website

On Anzac Day we marked the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli.

Gallipoli has special significance to many Australians. For the families of those men who fought at Gallipoli, and in the many other battles and campaigns of the First World War, the centenary commemorations are particularly poignant.

On 6 August 2015, to mark the 100th anniversary of the August Offensive a special commemorative service will be held at the Lone Pine Cemetery, providing Australians another opportunity to visit the Gallipoli Peninsula and Turkey during 2015.

The battle at Lone Pine saw some of the most fierce fighting of the Gallipoli campaign. Over four days, Australia suffered more than 2,000 casualties. Seven Australians were awarded the Victoria Cross for their bravery at Lone Pine.

Lone Pine is an important site for commemorating the contribution of more than 50,000 Australians who served at Gallipoli during the eight-month campaign and the 8,700 who died.

Details of the commemorative service at Lone Pine can be found here.
