Event Information

Camp Gallipoli is the opportunity for all Australians and New Zealanders to come together to sleep out under the same stars as the original Anzacs did may years ago.

In a series of locations around Australia and New Zealand schools and community groups are invited to join in a special night of remembrance, entertainment, mateship and the birth of that special Aussie & Kiwi ANZAC spirit.  Each venue will have spaces set aside for camping using swags, just like the Diggers did. There will be entertainment, special guests, great food options and a very special Dawn Service on Anzac day itself.

Camp Gallipoli will release that “Spirit of ANZAC“ within you and change the way you view and treat others for ever.
