- ANZAC Day Services Gallipoli, Turkey 2003 -
The Gallipoli Peninsula Peace Park covers almost the entire Peninsula and is protected in order to preserve the archaeological, cultural and military heritage of the area. The ANZAC Commemorative Site is the site of the ANZAC Day dawn service. It has been constructed with the approval of the Turkish Government because of the damage that was done annually to the Ari Burnu War Cemetery when the dawn services were held there. Full details of the site are available at the Department of Veterans` Affairs web site www.anzacsite.gov.au
The following information has been prepared to assist visitors wishing to attend the ANZAC Day services at Gallipoli to plan their trip. We are sure that your visit to the Peninsula will be a memorable one. However, it is important for international visitors to understand that only very limited facilities are available. The Turkish Government strictly controls any development on the Peninsula in an attempt to preserve this important historical site. The organisation of these facilities has only been possible with the assistance of the Australian and New Zealand Embassies in Ankara and through the cooperation of the Government of the Republic of Turkey.
Note: The order in which services will be held in 2003 has changed.
