We had a whole day to discover Gallipoli (a few days ago now) - to discover the view and terrain of where the misguided young soldiers of world war one landed and tried to take refuge and defend or control their piece of turf.

It was not only the young Australians and New Zealanders that lost their lives as it has been estimated that 36,000 of the Commonwealth died that year between the months of the April and December of 1915.

We visited the most famous sites for the Australians in Anzac Cove where we went in the following order:

1. The Anzac Commerative site where they had a pictorial explanation

2. Ariburnu Cemetery

3. Anzac Cemetery

4. A monument of a Turkish soldier carrying an Australian soldier

5. Lone Pine memorial and cemetery where the dawn services are held every Anzac day. 1,000 Australian graves are here.

6. 57th Regiment - the Turkish soldier cemetery

7. Hill 60 - the New Zealand cemetery.
