The roll of honour leaves you feeling really sad. Also grateful that so many gave their lives for our freedom

Not much to add to what others have said. Simple, striking, humbling. The list of names is daunting. I got there at 5 pm on a Tuesday in October and had the place to myself. If you can get yourself there for sunset it’s an...More

We went by this at night, and it is fully lighted. It is a monument to the British and colonial Troops (Australian, New Zealand, and Indian) of World War I. All of our fellow travelers were on deck to observe a solemn moment.

A moving memorial to many of the Anzac troops that lost their lives here in 1915. The memorial is immaculate thanks to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Hard to imagine this idyllic spot the scene of so much bloodshed 100+ years ago. Well worth a...More

The name actually is Helles Memorial and took name from Cape Helles where the Commonwealth toops landed in the beginning if the Gallipoli campaign. It is a memorial for the whole Campaign.

The grass-mower was diligently working and there was no soul in the area. A balanced obelisc-ed construction blending with and on what goes around. The inscriptions in marble pages are eloquent.

There are many really well kept CWGC cemeteries across the Gallipoli Peninsula for those whose final resting places are known, or who are believed to be buried within them. This magnificent memorial commemorates those whose final resting place could not be established after the war,...More
