  • I have added some pics of the dawn service. It's a incredible service. Rug up, gloves, beanie, and thermal underwear. A poncho is needed if it's going to be raining so put one in your backpack.  more »
  • Every time I come from a place where I didn't make it for a long time. Closing your eyes specifically came to yadetmek those days.

  • We made a road trip and since I am an absolute Kiwi fan, I had to visit this place. The coast is beautiful, and the sea was crystal clear. There was a little wind, but the area is so beautiful. The monuments are well sign-posted and almost every table is specified also in German, in English, but in any case.

  • I attended the Anzac Day dawn service here and it was a very moving experience. Watching the sun come up and the serenity of the place was beautiful. It's a place that holds a lot of importance to New Zealanders, Australians and also Turkish. Worth a visit any time of year.
  • The place is very moving. Thousands of troops of Australia and Newzealand landed right here and lost their lives. Its like being connected to them after more than a century. The place is well maintained and history is well kept.
  • This whole area is incredibly powerfull. You can not be moved by the loss of life and tragedy that occurred here. No documentaries or youtube videos can prepae you for the experience of actually being here.
  • The Anzac cove had strong emotions in it, and it definitely meant a lot to the Australian, New Zealand, and Turkish families who suffered from WWI and WWII. My friend's great grandfather has died in the war in Anzac cove, and every year they will go all the way to the other side of the world to remember what has happened. I believe that no one ever leaved Anzac cove without tears, and that the heroes that lie under the poppies will never be forgotten.
  • No one spending any time there, either walking the beach and hills, or visiting the war graves, can leave without feeling heartbroken over the senseless loss of so many young men in the pursuit of futile wars. I visited ANZAC cover back in 1981 and had the entire area to myself for the better part of a day, and walking along the beach, then climbing up along Walker's Ridge to the top past mass burials and various markers, was simply heartbreaking. To stand there alone in the midst of an area where so many countrymen of my own age had perished was simply beyond words, and by the time I reached the top and sat on the parapet there I simply broke down and sobbed my eyes out. It's better to have company to be sure visiting such a place to help break the mood and keep you anchored in the land of the living, otherwise you'll be overwhelmed by the strong sense of all the dead who perished there 100 years ago in such appalling circumstances.
