In 2015 we commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the landing of the ANZAC (the Australian & New Zealand Army Corps) forces at Gallipoli, on the 25th April in 1915 during World War 1. The Campaign at Gallipoli was one the first battlefront and theatre of war that Australians had participated in during World War I, the first conflict we had entered as a united nation.
While Australians as members from individual states, and eventually a united federation, had fought in South Africa during the Boer War, and while as many Australians, and New Zealanders for that matter, died in any number of single battles on the Western Front in a single day as died during the entire Gallipoli Campaign, it was the Gallipoli Campaign that began to solidify the image of what it meant to be an “Australian” both to the Australian people, and to those elsewhere in the world.
Battlefields Of The World have been providing quality battlefield tours for over a decade, have led ADFA Study Tours through France, have organised Veteran Return visits to Vietnam, Singapore and more. We are proud to announce that with their assistance we will have one dedicated departure in 2015 to help people attend the 100th Anniversary of the Gallipoli Landings. For more information .. read on!
