25 April 1915 – birth of the ANZAC spirit

This weekend in Australia we’re remembering.

This year we’re marking the centenary of the landing of the ANZACs at what has come to be known as ANZAC Cove, on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey on the morning of 25 April 1915.  The 100 years of ANZAC  and Gallipoli and the ANZACs provide a window into how we Australians see our military heritage.

Each year we celebrate ANZAC Day as a national holiday – but not to glorify war. We remember the sacrifices made. We remember that every war is a tragedy.
