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.

We did the trip from Istanbul and spent the day touring the battlefields. I recommend getting a local guide as the information they have makes all the difference

This is a well kept area so thank you to the Turkish people....so much feeling here for the poor soldiers that laid their lives down all that time ago.....I went with a small tour group through Intrepid and it was thoroughly worth it.

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...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.

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...More

We used Crowded House (based in Eceabat) - as per our review. They do very good tours and they are 'local' to Gallipoli. The snag with companies based in Istanbul can be a lack of local knowledge. Bear in mind that the... More
