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.

High overlooking the beach, and with the graves and inscribed names of so many soldiers who died in the conflict, this is a frequently visited site by Auzzies and Kiwis - but it should be by others too. Hundreds of thousands of casualties on all sides in WWI. Very well tended by the Turkish former adversaries. When we were there... More

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.

You are actually living the battle of Gallipoli. We had perfect guide with extensive historical and strategy knowledge, who guided us through all memorials. Stories about the soldier lives on both sides, way of fighting, tactics and mistakes of the soldiers ... one of the best tours

The whole National Park highlights the tragedies of war. A once historic place of horror, is now a place of honour. From courage and significant casualties, grew a significant place of commemoration. With past heroism, to present heartbreak. From ravage and rivalry, to roses and remembrance. The magnitude of what transpired here, will never be forgotten. A tour through Gallipoli... More

This area with all its cemeteries is a sad reminder of the ravages of war. But what were the turks to do other than defend their homeland against the aggressors who paid a heavy price here. The national park park with its sea views and beaches is actually a nice place if it was not for the war. To me... More

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.

The Gallipoli National Historic Park spans the Gallipoli Peninsula and encompasses the main battle sites. It was here on 25 April 1915 that British, Australian, New Zealand and Indian troops landed (with French troops landing at nearby Canakkale) to try to gain control of the Dardanelles during WWI. Nine months of ferocious fighting ensued that resulted in 130,000 deaths and... More
