ANZAC Day is commemorated by Australia and New Zealand on 25 April every year to remember members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who landed at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I.
ANZAC Day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. The acronym (ANZAC) stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, whose soldiers quickly became known as ANZACs themselves. The pride they took in that name endures to this day, and ANZAC Day remains one of Australia and New Zealand's most important national occasions.
For those wishing to make pilgrimage to the sacred ground of Gallipoli, we have a selection of escorted tours that will show you those battlefields and hard conditions under which the ANZAC troops fought. All tours have lecturers who are knowledgeable in all aspects of the Gallipoli campaign.
