Tuesday 25th April
ANZAC Day at Gallipoli
Awake before sun rise for the ANZAC Day Dawn Service. We become aware of the almost deafening silence as the moving service to commemorate our fallen forefathers on this special day begins. You will then have the chance to visit Chunuk Bair to visit the Australian Memorial at Lone Pine before heading to Chunuk Bair Memorial to attend the New Zealand Memorial Service. Unfortunately the Australian service at the Lone Pine memorial has been cancelled. Late afternoon you will meet up with the Fez Bus again to head to the small town of Ayvalik for some well deserved sleep.
