ANZAC DAY Tours

Guidepost Tours will take you to places of remembrance on ANZAC Day. Tours include a knowledgeable team of war historians and often, a local guide as well. We have a range of tours taking in the special Commemorations for the 100th Anniversary of World War I throughout Europe including Gallipoli and the Western Front. These tours are scheduled from 2015 through to 2018

Our range of Gallipoli Battlefield Tours will also take place for the commemoration of 100 years Battle at Lone Pine on 6th August 2015 (Australia) and the 100 years Battle at Chunuk Bair on 8th August 2015 (New Zealand). Bookings are now open.

 

BATTLE OF LONE PINE
 
On 6 August 2015, to mark the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Lone Pine, the Turkish Government has agreed to the Australian Government’s request for a special commemorative service.  This will be a significant commemorative event and provides Australians with an additional opportunity to visit the Gallipoli Peninsula and Turkey during 2015.

Lone Pine is an important site for a 100th anniversary service, commemorating the contribution of more than 50,000 Australians who served at Gallipoli during the eight-month campaign and the 8,700 who died.

The battle at Lone Pine saw some of the most fierce fighting of the Gallipoli campaign. Over four days, Australia suffered more than 2,000 casualties. Seven Australians were awarded the Victoria Cross for their bravery at Lone Pine.

While this commemoration will be open to the public, it should be noted that the maximum capacity of the Lone Pine commemorative site is 8,000 visitors.While the service is to occur at the Lone Pine cemetery on 6 August 2015, the exact time of the service is yet to be determined.
 
Further information on the Lone Pine service will be updated on this website as planning proceeds.
 

 

BATTLE OF CHUNUK BAIR
 
On 8 August 2015 a New Zealand Commemorative service will be held on Chunuk Bair at Gallipoli. This service will mark the centenary of the Battle for Chunuk Bair, New Zealand’s most significant action in the Gallipoli Campaign.

This commemorative service will not be balloted, and anyone who wishes to attend can do so.

More information regarding this commemorative service will be available in due course, so please check with our office for updates.
