The day of the 25th April, 2015, as any Australian or New Zealander will tell you, is a highly significant event on the calendar. The day marks the 100th anniversary of the landing in Gallipoli during World War I, one of the most notable examples of the bravery of the Australian and NZ armed forces.
In 1915, the Allied army of Australia and NZ fought to capture the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey. The resulting conflict led to great loss of life, with nearly 13,000 Australian and New Zealand soldiers being killed.
Each year, ANZAC Day commemorates this occasion; and the 100th anniversary services promise to be a remarkable event. If you’ve managed to secure a ticket, but have yet to book your ANZAC Day tour, here are a few ideas to whet your appetite.
