The largest Anzac Day commemoration outside of Australia, is held at Gallipoli. Every year Australia and New Zealand conduct three services at Gallipoli – a dawn service at the Anzac Commemorative Site, followed by an Australian Service at Lone Pine and a New Zealand Service at Chunuk Bair.
Visitors to the Anzac Day services at Gallipoli are required to register their attendance in advance. The majority of travellers make the 5 hour journey from Istanbul to Gallipoli on or before the 24th April and stay overnight in the open-air Anzac Commemorative Site. Visitors will spend up to 30 hours exposed to the elements and it can get very cold, so need to come prepared. Once there, visitors will have the opportunity to hear stories of camaraderie and heroism, and the opportunity to pay respect to those who lost their lives in World War 1.
