GALLIPOLI- ANZACS MEMORIAL TOURS
Anzac Cove is perhaps the most famous spot on the Gallipoli Peninsula. This small cove which is 600m long, is where the men of the ANZAC corps first came ashore on 25 April 1915 and were sent immediately into battle along the Second Ridge. ANZAC Cove was only a kilometre of the frontline on the mountainous western ​side of the peninsula and within easy range of Turkish artillery, who inflicted massive casualties. By 1st May 1915, more than 27,000  ANZAC's had landed at Gallipoli and ANZAC Cove became the main base for the Australian and New Zealand troops for the eight months of the Battle of Gallipoli. The Dawn Service was traditionally held within the cove until 1999 when a larger capacity purpose built "Anzac Commemorative Site" was constructed nearby on North Beach which is within easy walking distance.Lone Pine was the site of one of the most famous battles of the Gallipoli campaign. From 6th - 9th August 1915, the maze of log covered trenches at Lone Pine became the scene of bloody, hand to hand combat, as the Australians attempted to take control of the Turkish line and divert the Turks attention from Chunuk Bair, which was the objective of the August offensive. The battle of Lone Pine was a rare success for the ANZACs, although it was at a very high price; 2200 Australians and 6000 Turks were killed of wounded. The site gained its name after the Turks cut down all but one of the Aleppo pines, which the ANZACs called the lonesome pine. Today the Lone Pine cemetery covers part of the battlefield and one tree raised from the seed of a Gallipoli cone, stands at the site. Lone Pine is the largest Commonwealth War Grave Commission Cemetery on the Gallipoli peninsular and it is the site of the Australian memorialservice on ANZAC day.Shrapnel Valley which leads to Monash Valley, was vital to the ANZAC campaign. Although always under heavy Turkish ffire,
 

Shrapnel Valley was the main route for Allied troops with essential supplies, to reach the front line along the Second Ridge. Many ANZACs lost their lives here, including Private John Simpson Kirkpatrick who was shot on 19 May 1915. Simpson famously evacuated wounded men from the slopes of the valley using donkeys and he is buried at Beach Cemetery. Today Shrapnel Valley is the second largest cemetery on the peninsular. It is also one of the most beautiful memorial sites, with a distinctive Judas tree in the centre.Chunuk Bair is the second highest peak of the Sari Bair range, and the capture of this peak was one of the main objectives of the Allied August offensive. The New Zealanders managed to successfully take control of Chunuk Bair on 8th August but they were unable to hold the position whilst waiting for reinforcements, and the Turks regained control on the 10th. The loss of Chunuk Bair marked the end of the effort to reach the central hills of the Peninsula. The Chunuk Bair Cemetary was created after the armistice on the site and now 632 Commonwealth servicemen of the First World War are buried here. In the cemetary a New Zealand National Memorial stands alongside the Ataturk Memorial. On ANZAC Day this site is where the New Zealand memorial service is held.North Beach lies adjacent to ANZAC Cove, past the headland of Ari Burnu. A distinctive rocky outcrop nicknamed the "Sphinx' by the ANZACs, overlooks North Beach, which now plays host to the ANZAC Day Commemorative Service each year. On 25th April 1915, one of the first waves of the 11th Battalion from Western Australia landed on

North Beach and desperately 
struggled upwards to reach the plateau, under Turkish fire. Reaching the top, a day long struggle ensued as they fired upon the Turks in an effort to move inland and gain ground, whilst the Turks were withdrawing towards the ridge line. One of the men to come ashore at North Beach was Private John Simpson Kirkpatrick of the 3rd Field Ambulance, known as the 'man with the donkey'. The 3rd Field Ambulance men set up an aid post at North Beach during the morning of 25th April, to search cliffs around the sphinx to find and care for the wounded.Guided Gallipoli tours to commomarete the site, what's on Gallipoli Turkey can be understand better by an Anzac tour combined with a Western Turkey tour and Istanbul City tours.
