Overview

More
Gallipoli was the site of a major battle in World War I and this peninsula, part of the Dardanelles, is still remembered as a major defeat for the Allied Forces—and a springboard for the future Turkish leader Mustafa Kemal. The beautiful, quiet park is dotted with memorials and other features; it is the site of a big annual memorial for the thousands of Australian and New Zealand forces who died here.

I have to say it was very emotional , really opened my eyes to what people who have gone before us had to endure. Setting of graves/memorials gives you a very peaceful feeling we had a car so was able to do it unrushed.

Two nations once at war. One invaded and one defended. Turkey has done a immensely wonderful act in protecting this peninsula to show both the sides of the battles fought here.

Would recommend a car to travel around the area. You will just happen upon the many memorials and cemeteries. A fascinating the moving reminder of WW1 history from 1915.

What a moving place. War highlights the stupidity of the senior officers like landing in the wrong place because they did not take water currents into consideration. Well worth visiting the park and viewing it from both sides.
