Welcome to the New Zealand Gallipoli 2015 website
On 25 April 2015, we will commemorate the centenary of the ANZAC landings on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey. What followed in 1915 was a bitter eight-month campaign that helped to forge our nation.
Australia and New Zealand conduct three commemorative services at Gallipoli on Anzac Day each year. The Dawn Service at the Anzac Commemorative Site is jointly conducted by both countries and is followed by an Australian Memorial Service at Lone Pine, and a New Zealand Memorial Service at Chunuk Bair.
As the Anzac Commemorative Site has a limited capacity, anticipated demand to attend represents a challenge to ensuring a secure, safe and comfortable visitor experience, while maintaining the dignity and solemnity of the centenary commemorations.
The New Zealand attendance pass ballot is now closed.
The New Zealand component of the ballot will be restricted to New Zealand citizens and holders of New Zealand permanent resident visas (regardless of where they currently reside) aged 18 years and over as of 25 April 2015.
