Event Information

Camp Gallipoli is a once in a lifetime opportunity for all Australians and New Zealanders to come together on the 100th anniversary of Gallipoli to sleep out under the same stars as the original Anzacs did 100 years ago.

In a series of historic locations around Australia and New Zealand, families, 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, movies, documentaries, great food options and a very special Dawn Service on Anzac day itself.

Camp Gallipoli has been fully endorsed by the Anzac centenary committee, Department of Veterans Affairs, Federal Education Department, RSL and Legacy. These special events will be respectful and informative but also most entertaining for all Australians and New Zealand students. The 100th anniversary of Gallipoli is your chance to share a moment in history with family and friends. Camp Gallipoli brings it all together in one remarkable event.
