This place makes you think. A tour is so worthwhile to hear the whole story especially when you are Aussies. Very humbling to walk around, read some of the grave tombstones to see how young our soldiers were.
So worth a visit.
Incredible but horrifying, such a beautiful place and rosemary everywhere.
Our tour guide Bulent Korkmaz ( highly recommend this guy) explained the damage that the Turkish people suffered from the war which is no different to Australia, you just never see the other persons back...More
This is one of the largest places i have visited in a day. It has turkish-British-French-NZ and Australian graveyards and memorials and museums inside. This national park has museums, trences, fields, villages inside. U need at least 3 days to visit it and understand it.
A very moving experience to see the places where thousands and thousands of young Aussie, Kiwi and Turkish soldiers all died. The memorials are all really good, although the Turkish obviously have greater funding for their memorials than there is for the ANZACs. The Commonwealth...More

Sandra we drove from Istanbul but you can catch a train to the airport and pick up a car and drive from there which is a good option. Its a lot less harrowing as the traffic is chaotic when you get closer to Istanbul. The price seems very inflated probably due to the centenary but if you are looking a tours try RSL Tours (they were recommended by our local host but it was cheaper for us to hire a car for 4 people)based in Istanbul. Whatever you decide to do don't miss the opportunity to go to Gallipoli.
