The Gallipoli campaign has left such a powerful legacy amongst generations of Australians that it has become an important part of our national identity. The 25th of April was officially named ANZAC Day in 1916, one year after the forces landed on the Gallipoli shores. On this day in 2015, Australians will commemorate and remember the centenary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

When you visit Gallipoli with Boronia Travel Centre, you know that you are travelling with the most knowledgeable and experienced battlefield Tour Company in Australia.
